A Realistic Dale 

In a letter to Mr. Frederick W. 
Dumschott, Treasurer of the Col- 
lege, Mr. Brohawn stated that "No- 
vember 30 is a very realistic date; 
all the contractors will do every- 
thing they can to improve it." 

The seventy upperclass residents 
of the unfinished dormitory, ac- 
cording to Mr. Dumschott, may ex- 
pect to move many of their belong- 

Thnaksgiving vacation. It has t 
emphasized, however, that non

No Moment Be Lost 

"The readiness is all"— Hamlet 

As Washington College welcomes its 105th class, it stands 
belter equipped than ever to fulfill its commitment to liberal 
arts education. However, the realization of a liberal education 
is dependcnl more on the student than the school. 

As we head into academic year 185, it would perhaps be 
fitting for all students to reaffirm their college goals and their 
individual commitments to education, keeping in mind some 
thoughts staled recently by poet Judson Jerome: 

"I am preparing to be a human being, I am seeking wisdom, 
goodness, happiness. 1 want lo develop a habit of free but careful, 
disciplined inquiry. I would like to have the courage to be 
myself, to dissent, to think independently. I am developing a 
compassion for others, an understanding of people and ways 
of life radically different from my own. 1 am learning the 
grounds and the means and developing the character for intelli- 
gent, significant social action ... I am learning to appreciate 
the worth and frailty and brevity of life, to be jealous of my 
time, to be desperate that no moment or experience be lost 

Punitive Draft Laws? 

The Selective Service System's highest appeals hoard upheld 
last week the 1-A draft classifications of six University of Michi- 
gan students who lost their deferments for participating in a 
protest sit-in against the Vietnam war.

cancelled their

Col. Arthur A. Holmes. Selective Service director in Michi- 
gan, saiil that the students were reclassified for breaking a local 
trespassing law, not for protesting the Vietnam war. 

Even if one accepts Holmes' statements about the reason 
for the reclassifications, we must wonder whether draft laws 
< be punitive jn nature. After all, there are civil 
latently something more 

Can and will the threat of reclassification be used to control 
the actions of individuals who are protesting against government 
policy in a democratic society?

and, as is true of Mr. Lewis's 
slightly repetitious but absorbing 
article on the diplomacy of Fried- 
rich von Holstein, its picture of 
political futility juxtaposes inter- 
estingly with the alienation and 
disenchantment discussed in the 
literary articles. 

Rickcrl's Judgement Fresh 

Of these I thought Mr. Rick- 
crt's and Mr. Lamond's especially 
valuable, partly because their de- 
tailed analysis of narrower subjects 
led them to fresher judgements 
than I could find in the articles by 
Mrs. Rickert and Mr. Rabat. Also, 

ment that "the modern novel, from 
Dostroevsky's Notes from the Un- 
derground to the works of Hardy. 
Joyce, Proust, Mann. Rilke Kaf- 
ka, and Hesse, are all dark and 
deraeine in theme and mood." 

Is the mood and theme of A In 
Recherche du Temps Perdu all 
dark and deraeine, or for that mat- 
ter, all anything? And what about 
The Wings oj the Dove and The 
Ambassadors, whose author cer- 
tainly has as much right as Thomas 
Hardy to appear on Mr. Rabat's 
list. And although I find Mr. Ra- 
bat's literary judgements shrewdly 
discriminating, I can't sec that he 
makes a valid rase (if indeed one 
can be made) for censoring any- 

"Not Flesh" 

Mr. Rodar's essay on "Religious 
Use of Psychedelic Drugs" was

times have benefited from greater

No one article, of course, is at

all of the articles in Miscellany

of fashionable subjects. 

All in all, however, last spring's

In Mr. Babb's ex-house, the

they were once artifacts from the

There were originally four beds

Defense Untested 

Coach Athey considers his un- 
tested defense critical to this year's 
campaign. The offensive line seems 
to be scoring and moving the ball 
well, but Mr. Athey cautions that 
his line has not yet been tested 
against a strong defense. 

If the defense gels and the line 
proves to be as capable as they 
look, Coach Athcy feels that the 
Sho'men have another good chance 
for a successful season. 

Saturday's game with Hofstra 
should provide the necessary tests 
for the Sho' offense and defense. 
LTsually a moderately strong team, 
the Flying Dutchmen occasionally 
field an exceptional team. Hofstra 
usually gives the Sho'men a tough 
game, the scores seldom exceeding 
a one goal margin by cither team.

As Underdog Wins Upset

Scheduling problems, misundcr- 

Gcorge P. Mahoney in Maryland's 
Democratic primary and an assas- 
sin's threat all combined to sabo- 
tage a "great debate" to be held 
at the College September 22. 

The ill-fated debate, initiated by 
the College Young Democrats 
Club, was to be the first major 
confrontation of the Maryland 
gubernatorial primary winners. 
Mahoney Not Invited 

Preparations for the debate 
started in May, when Democratic 
Club President Brian Kchoe, '69, 
invited the principal gubernatorial 
primary candidates to the campus. 
They were: Republican Spiro T. 
Agnew, Baltimore County Exccu- 

Carlton Sickles; Attorney-Genera 
Thomas Finan, a Democrat; ant 
Baltimore Comptroller Hymar

Agnew and Pressman accepted 

immediately, according to Kchoe, 

and a September 22 date was 

agreed upon. Sickles and Finan, 

honey, the complexion of the de- 
bate changed. With little time left 
before September 22, a telegram 
was sent by Kchoe to Mahoney, 
asking the candidate to debate 
Agnew, who was still expected in 
Chcstertown by the Young Demo- 
Life Threatened 

No negative or affirmative ans- 
wer was received from Mahoney. 
An unknown person threatened his 
life, and police did not permit the 
candidate to see callers or to leave 
his "caslle" home. 

Just days before the scheduled 
date, however, the Young Demo- 
crats still expected Agnew to ap- 
pear. It was then that a routine 
check with Agnew's office disclosed 
a mistake in Agnew's calendar of 
appearances. According to his cal- 
endar, the Chestcrtown debate had 
been cancelled, and lie was to ap- 
pear in Prince Georges County

After this cancellation, plus Mr. 
Mahoney's uncertainty, Mr. Press-

was off. And September 22 there

Washington College's first semester 
will begin October 21 and continue 
throughout the weekend with a 
schedule of activities prepared by 
the Student Senate's Social Com- 
mittee for Homecoming, 1966. 

According to Joe Coale, chair- 
man of the committee, the festivi- 
ties will commence on Friday night 
with a special "Chesapeake Bay' 1 
dinner served in Hodson Hall. 
Steve Myking, director of the Fri- 
day activities, announced that the 
Homecoming Queen and her Court 
will be presented following a bon- 
fire and rally to be held near Rus- 
sell Gymnasium at 8:30. 
Bagpipcd Band 

The festivities will continue Sat- 
urday with a Homecoming Parade 
before the soccer game against Ly- 
c riming and the cross country meet 
with Catholic University. The tra- 
ditional floats will be present with 
the added attraction of four bands, 
including one complete with bag- 
pipes and kilts. 

Saturday evening a buffet din- 
ner in Hodson Hall is planned for 
students, followed by a dinner and 
dance for visiting alumni and 

A Semi- Formal Affair

The Washington College Men's 
Residence Association will hold 
three elections within the next two 

The first, to be held Fridav, Oc- 
tober 21, will decide who is to 
serve on the MRA Council, the 
governing body of the organization. 
Executive Committee 

On Wednesday, October 26, 
choosing among the members of 
the Council, the students will se- 
lect an Executive Committee, con- 
sisting of the President, the Vice- 
President, Secretary and Treasurer 
of the MRA. The final election will 
be held on Monday October 31, 
to fill the four vacancies left on

ation of the Executive Committee. 

The MRA will enforce regula- 
tions concerning dormitory life 
through its Judiciary Committee.

Those living on campus would have 
increased responsibility for main-

Chester River and then return.

The Port Welcome, a cruise ship

250 Tickets On Sale 
Coale said "the SGA hopes to 
sell 250 tickets to the student body, 
but if any remain they will be 
placed on general sale to alumni 
and friends of the College." 

Coale also announced that chap- 
crones for the excursion will in- 
clude Dean and Mrs. Carl West- 
erdahl, Mr. and Mrs. John Lin- 
ville, and Mr. and Mrs. Robert 
Pritzlaff. In addition five uniform- 
ed guards will be on board. 
'Greater SGA Role' 
When asked why the SGA was 
sponsoring two major social activi- 
ties this semester, Coale replied, 
"there is a definite lack of student 
social functions on campus this 
year, partly due to rescheduling 
and relocation of fraternal activi- 
ties. It is my hope that the SGA 
will take more initiative and re- 
sponsibility in providing a variety

only Negroes were given the op-

The civic leaders told of genera] 
local support for the College's tu-

students for their role in helping 
solve what would otherwise be 
unremedied study difficulties in the 
high schools. 

More Tutees Than Tutors 
Because there are more appli- 
cants for the tutoring assistance 
than there arc tutors, the individ- 
ual student's need will have to be 
reviewed and considered in terms 
of need by Dr. Hoffman and some 
of the student's teachers. 

Tutoring will be on a one-to-one 
basis, a factor which greatly limits 
the possible scope of the program. 
Dr. Hoffman pointed out that there

Due to sometimes inaccurate nnd haphazard accounting 
methods, exactly what happened to these appropriations, somc- 
linics as high as $750, after student organizations receive them, 
has been somewhat of a mystery ill past years. 

Such will not lie the case this year. Due to the efforts of 
President Daniel Gibson, Bursar Robert Simmonds, S.G.A. 
President Cliff llankcy and S.G.A. Treasurer Marie Warner, 
there should no longer lie a question of Student Activities Fee 


Suggested changes in student organizations' budgeting pro- 
cedures include the following:

The National Teacher Corps is in trouble. 

At a time of severe teacher shortage and of desperate need 
to recruit new teachers for rural and urban slum schools, this 
program has captured the imagination of many college grad-

However, last week the Senate voted only $7.5 million 
to finance the corps. This amount will pay existing teaching

now attached to schools— but it will not carry the Teaching

Football Madness Rampant 
On September Afternoon 

By Jaia Barrett 

Football fanatics at Washington 
College got a chance to see quite 
a game last Friday in front of 
Bunting Library. Rough and tough 
Alpha Omicron Pi Sorority played 
against challenging Lambda Chi 
Alpha Fraternity. 

Captain of the feminine line-up 
was Malificent Maryanov other- 
wise known as the Pink Terror in 
Pigtails. She headed the following 
impressive list of players: Stupen- 
dous Strausser, Killer Kieffer, 
Deadly Davidson, Galloping Gall- 
oway, Lynn the Lion Hearted, Vic- 
ious Van Nostrand, Vengeful Vos- 
kian, Martin the Mashei^ Dyna- 
mite Dorsey, Terrible Thomas, 
Sensational Sansbury, Herculean 
Hill, Spit-fire Straycr, Bruteful 
Buckingham, Battering Ballard, 
and Crafty Killen. 

Super Coach 

Coaching the AOII team was 
the brawny, brave, bold, brilliant, 
bewitching and beguiling Brian 
Griffin. His inspiring advice to the 
girls before the game was to "make 
like animals!" 

The lucious Lambdas who dared 
to challenge this remarkable team 
were Meringue Mulvaney, Spun 
Webb, Spittin Kelly, Whithering 
Whitson, Huckleberry Henehan, 
Mini-McGinnis, Creampuff Cam- 
bardella, Routed Roberts, Hacked 
Bohaker, Mashed Marshall, Cream- 
ed Campbell, Kitten McKinney, 
Ructious Ray and Marinaded 

Leap Frog Run 

The Lambdas tried out some of 
their new plays against AOII such 
as the chicken fight block, the leap 
frog run, and the illegal, but quite 
effective, abduction play. 

It was the AOII team, however, 
who showed real skill and finesse 
on the field. Outstanding in her 
performance was Galloping Gallo- 

touchdowns for AOII. Also to be 
complimented on their playing 
were Killer Kieffer, Deadly David- 
son, Dynamite Dorsey, Spit-Fire 
Straycr and Vengeful Voskian. 
During halftime three lovely 
cheerleaders entertained the crowd 
which had gathered under the 
Elm to watch the game. Leading 
exciting yells were Mod Moulton, 
Strobic Simpson and Mazy Mon- 



carried off the field by his broth-

and Martin the Masher. Injurec 
was Mini-McGinnis who had to b<

Players Planning Ahead 

The Arts Center is a facility 
which has been long and anxiously 
awaited by the Washington Col- 
lege Community. The Players, the 
College dramatics organization, \\-ill 
make the Center their new home. 
The scheduling of plays in the 
new building has already begun, 
with about four full-scale produc- 
tions to be staged during the thea- 
tre's first year of operation. 

Concerts and other culturally 
beneficial porgrams will be offered 
in the Fine Arts Building in ad- 
dition to the Players' presentations. 
New Departments Created 

Two new academic departments 
of study, Music and Drama, have 

been created this yemr and a third, 
Art, has been further expanded, 
Several new courses in each field 
are being planned to take advan- 
tage of the new facilities which 
will be available when the Arts 
Center is opened.

The professors directing the new 
courses of instruction encourage 
anyone interested in learning more 
about the program to contact them

Theta Chi, Outcasts

Only two intramural football 
games were played this past week 
in a rain-abrcviatcd schedule as 
both the Theta Chi Fraternity and 
the Outcasts registered victories. 

Carl Ortman led the Theta Chi's 
to a 40-0 victory over the 1000 
Clowns as he ran for two touch- 
downs and passed for three more 
scores. Ortman's touchdown runs 
were for ten yards and five yards 
respectively. Ends, Steve Clogett 
and George Buchless, got into iht

position's endzone for a six point 
score. Ferris, incidentally, will r«

the Outcast quarterback, dominat-

as he scored on thirty and sixty

was good for sixty yards. 

Soccer Spotlights 

By Dick Louck 

Washington College opened its 
1966 soccer season Tuesday against 
the University of Delaware. The 
score was Conditioning 2, Wash- 
ington College 1. Delaware had 
something to do with the victory, 
but not as much as the lack of 
stamina among the Sho" squad. 

Unless one can find a represen- 
tative of Mother Nature to blame, 
then the situation remains; because 
continuous rain, mud and generally 
nasty ground conditions kept the 
Washington team from having its 
first game according to schedule, 
and postponed a planned scrim- 
mage with the team from either 
Dover air base or the Chestertown 

Also full field scrimmages were 
rare and sometimes impossible on 
the rain-soaked field. The Wash- 
in the gym, a very unsuitable 

Stamina Lack 

Early in the game, when the 
Sho'men were fresh, the potential 
the club possesses was evident as 
they kept the ball in Delaware 
territory for most of the early 
quarters. Then the lack of stamina, 
mostly due to the players not being 
able to pace themselves and not 
being used to game conditions, 
started to tell. 

Attacks on the Delaware goal 
came less and less frequently as 

the game wore on. Finally, Ed 
Winant pushed the ball past the 
Blue Hen goalie to chalk up the 
first score. 

The Sho'men by this time had 
just about given their all in at- 
tempting to get coordinated and 
were pushing themselves more than 
the usual 100 percent asked. But 
there was nothing left to push 
with, and Delaware, with two 
scrimmages under its belt, kept 
getting too close to the Sho' goal 
and finally was able to slip one in 

To be beaten by a much better 
team which simply outclasses their 
opponents is not as disappointing 
as losing to a team you feel you 
should have beaten if only you 
had . . . But a game that goes 
into overtime is no disgrace, it is

New Diagnostic Clue Seen 
As 4 Back-To-School Slump' 

As millions of students return to 
classes, school and college phy- 
sician and nurses soon will be faced 
with long lines of young men and 
women complaining of feeling tired 
and listless and having other diffi- 
cult-to-pin-down symptoms. 

Some students will simply be suf- 
fering from laziness. But many 
others will have a legitimate reason 
for 'back-to-school slump' — infec- 

back-to-school disease which in the 
past has been more difficult to 
diagnose than to treat. 

"Kissing Disease" 

A theory that "mono" is trans- 
mitted by close personal contact 
has led college students to roman-

Yet, when it strikes, infectious 
mononucleosis can be one of the 
most miserable experiences in a 
student's life. Recovery can be 
slow and every day lost from school 
can endanger marks and play 
havoc with education plans. 

Now, experts have found that it

the Tulane University School of 
Social Work in New Orleans re-

students who were being treated 
for mono were momentarily de- 
pressed at the time they became 
ill. Thus, mono becomes a trigger 
for drop-outs, an excuse f<:r failing

In addition, mono is also a 
serious problem because of its abil- 
ity to mimic other ailments in- 
cluding appendicitis and hepatitis. 
One authority, in fact, reports that 
no fewer than 29 separate maladies 
can be taken for mono if diagnostic 
procedures are imprecise. These 
ailments may call for exploratory 
surgery to verify or potent drugs

Therefore, because of the possi- 
bility of a mono patient being sub- 
jected to the risk of being diag- 
nosed and treated incorrectly, 
physicians have been searching for 
a quick and accurate test to con- 
firm or rule out the disease. The 
Tulane study further indicates the 
need for early detection of the 
disease, since postponement of 
needed bed rest adds to the stress 
and makes for emotional as well as

Application Deadlines 
Approach for Seniors 

Seniors should apply as early 
as possible to graduate schools and 
take any exams prerequisite to ac- 
ceptance as soon as possible, said 
Ermon N. Foster, Registrar of 
Washington College. 

The Graduate Record Examina- 
tions administered by Washington 
College will probably be given 

March 30, 1967. 

Comp Dates Set 

Mr. Fost- 
er estimated that the dates for 
the Comprehensive examinations 
lo be given in the Spring of 1967 
will be May 11 and 12. 

The G.R.E. national testing

February 25, with two later dates 
which would not give graduate 

Walker Leads 
New Chorus 

Under the direction of Mr. John 
Walker, newly-appointed Director 
of Music, the Washington College 
Chorus has resumed rehearsals 
with the piano accompaniment of 
Mrs. Daniel Z. Gibson. 

The Chorus is composed of ap- 
proximately twenty men and 
twenty women who practice each 
Thursday evening from 7:00 to 
8:30 in the Student Activities 
Center. Sectional rehearsals arc 
scheduled during open assembly 
periods Tuesday and Thursday. 

At the present time the Chorus 

is preparing a number of standard 
selections for a Christmas Concert. 
A second concert will be presented 
m the spring, but Mr. Walker 
duubts that the group will go on 

usually made a year in advance. 

If enough interest is shown, 
smaller choral ensembles and a 
men's or women's glee club might 
be formed, according to Mr. Walk- 
'-r. There also exists the possibly 
'if forming small 

schools adequate time for consid- 
eration of the marks before mak- 
ing final acceptance decisions. 

Law School Tests 

The law school examinations 
will be given November 12 and 
February 1 1 . Medical school ex- 
amination schedules have been de- 
cided, and are posted in William

of other examination schedules.

At present, Miss Canley is the

lecturer in the Oriental Seminary 
at Johns Hopkins University. 

While a student at Bryn Mawr 
College, Miss Canley developed her

Athens and at the Oriental Insti-

Job Well Done 

In past years, the Student Government Association has not 
been notoriously noted for its creativity in sponsoring campus 

However, last Saturday night's "completely unique experi- 
ence" aboard the Port Welcome was a "welcome" deviation 
from this pattern. The Elm congratulates Joe Coale, Chairman 
of the SGA Social Committee and organizer of the cruise, for 
a job well done. 

The Elm also encourages the SGA to discuss more such 
creative ventures. One possibility is a jazz concert in place of 
the traditional folk-singing affair. Another is SGA sponsorship 
of more bus trips, particularly to Washington and Philadelphia. 

(The following article appeared 
in the October 3, 1966 issue of the 
Salisbury Times in different form.) 

A Washington College graduate 
has returned this month to the 
remote interior of Ethiopia, 10,000 
miles away, half-way around the 
world, for a second term of enlist- 
ment in the Peace Corps. 
Economics Major 

Grieg LcBcl, '64, an Economics 
major, enlisted in the Peace Corps 
in October, 1964. After a period 
of training in Los Angeles where 
he studied the Amharic native 
language, he was assigned as a 
teacher to Emdcber, Ethiopia, a 
remote village of 2,000 without 
telephones or running water or 
adequate highway communications 
with the outside world. 
Teaches History 

He lives alone in a one-room 
grass house, works most days and 
nights, has a horse and some good 
native friends, and loves it. 

Grieg teaches history to ninth 
and tenth grade pupils. Instruction 
is in English, the official language 
for teaching in all secondary gov- 
ernment schools in Ethiopia. He 
has written his own textbook for 
classroom work and has a few 
books furnished by the ministry ol 

New Library 
His and the school's special 
pride is a new library just com- 
pleted with funds furnished by the 
United States Agency for Inter- 
national Development — the mag- 
nificent sum of $465.00. The build- 
ing has 2,000 books, almost all in 
English. Only four books are Am- 
haric, the spoken language of the 

Sauer-bait House 
Grieg's village is 7,000 feet in 
the hills, and he sleeps under four 
blankets in a huge regal bc<l elab- 
orately carved and decorated in 
native fashion. His one-room grass 
house is called a sauer-bait and 
is heated by a large central fire- 
place much in the modem fashion. 
Smoke goes up through the grass 
roof — eventually. He has a small 
gasoline stove for cooking, which 
he does himself. Some students

Search For Dean 

There seems to be little marked progress in the search for 
a new Academic Dean lor Washington College, according to 
Acting Dean Newlin. (See interview, page 3). 

It is difficult to imagine why Washington College should 
have any trouble finding a suitable Dean. But, it will take time. 

Washington offers an unusual opportunity for someone with 
imagination, someone who has a fundamental objection to "the 
way things are going" in American education. The school is 
small, independent, academically flexible, well staffed, dedicated 
to the liberal arts and ideally suited to experimentation with new 
forms of higher education. 

Perhaps lurking in the shadows somewhere is a man with 
the radical independence of a Hutchins or the leonine philoso- 
phical imagination of a Dewey or a Paul Goodman. 

More and more, the existence of the small liberal arts col- 
lege is threatened by the multiversities which "sell" everything, 
and whose list of courses resemble a Sears catalogue. This makes 
it more imperative that Washington find someone with unique 
ideas about undergraduate education. We need someone who has 
a raison d'etre for the existence of a four-year liberal arts college. 

The Elm encourages those who arc responsible for the 
selection of the Dean to keep these thoughts in mind. It is too 
easy to settle for an "undistinguishable person," and, in the long 
run, we cannot afford to do that. 

Befriended by Priest 
Grieg said that when he first 
arrived in the village with five 
other members of the Peace Corps, 
he was befriended by a native 
French-speaking Catholic priest, 
Father Francois Marcos, who holds 
a position of influence in the ed- 
ucational and religious life of the 

The priest fed him, took him to 
his house, and helped Grieg find a 
house of his own. His position and 
influence with the native popula- 
tion has helped Grieg establish 
himself there in the school. The 
village is a composite of pagans, 
Moslems, and Christians of both 
the Catholic and Coptic faith 

Most of them, Grieg feels, 
only lip-service to religion.

Freshmen at Washington are at 
an in-between stage — they are in 
a position to assess the past and

The Senior Women's Honor So-

They accomplished both in a ser-

"How Freshmen Feel" 
As President Judy Reynolds ex- 
plained, "We had offered to help 
during freshman week but we were 
told we weren't needed. We 
thought that perhaps by setting up 
discussion groups now, we could 
answer any remaining questions 
anil also find nut how the freshtin'ii 

felt about their campus life." 

The discussions were held in- 
formally in Queen Anne's and 
Reid Hall lounges, with only in- 
terested freshmen and honor so- 
ciety members present. 

Girls More Open 
"The reason for this," Judy stat- 
ed, "was that we felt that the girls 
would be more open with both 

were no faculty members present." 
Freshman week was one of the 
first topics brought up for discus- 
sion. Although freshman week was 
shorter this year than in previous 
years, most of the girls felt that 
it was too long and there was not 
enough to do. "We just didn't

There does seem to be a strongly bohernian element this 
year — it should last until the cliques regroup, and everyone 
finds out what he or she is supposed to be. The New England 
Preps have sent a heavy contribution, too — we overheard one 
regimental-barred and well-tweeded character opening a con- 
versation, "I'm from Fairfield County, Brooks Brothers, and St. 
George's. Say, are you in a fraternity?" Funny, he was talking 
to Dean Westerdahl. 

W.C. is still far away from liberality, but we understand 
that there'll be no expulsions for heresy this year. And new 
things may be happening — of course, the what's- their- names 
slill sitting at the same table, and apathy hasn't exactly de-

Modulating Structure, 3-D, and 
Hydrogen Venus are three titles 
from Dr. Roland Gibson's large 
collection of Italian contemporary 
prints, sculpture, and paintings ac- 
quired last April in Italy. 

The collection includes a 
thorough representation of the 
Italian modernists. Dr. Gibson, 
Professor of Economics, met the 
artists through a Japanese artist, 
Mubuya Abe, living in Rome, who 
guided him from one studio to an- 
other throughout Italy. 

Gibson To Be Present 

This collection will be shown 
widely on the east coast at the 
Baltimore Museum of Art, October 
25-27 and later at the Virginia 
Museum of Fine Arts in Rich- 
mond, The East on Maryland 
Academy of the Arts, Dartmouth 

The collection will also be shown 
during the opening of the Wash- 
ington College Fine Arts Center 
next autumn. Dr. Gibson will be 
present for the openings of several

Japanese collection, which im ludc;

Commenting on his collection, 
Dr. Gibson said that a painting 
does not have to be pretty to be 
beautiful. Some people who think 
the work of the modernists as 
"child's play" should try it them- 
selves. He agreed that much of the 
abstract art attempts to evoke 
emotion, and that it is often the 
color imagination in the pictures 
that is interesting. 

Some of the paintings can be 
called "products of our times" be- 
cause they seem to convey dehu- 
manization. Others, says Dr. Gib- 
son, can be called "systemic," in 
which the artist plans what he

contenders for winning the Mason-

Constructive Greek Thought 


Sororities; Campus Role 
Discussed By Conference 

> discuss the role 
and responsibility of Greek socie- 

This was the title of the opening 
speech given by Mrs. G. B. Week, 
National President of Zeta Tau Al- 
pha from Berkeley, California, and 
Mrs. Ralph Sapp, National Mem- 
bership Director of Zeta Tau Al- 
pha from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 
"Realize Your Potential" 

They urged all Greeks to "real- 
ize your greatest potential and 
achieve your absolute best in all 
phases of collegiate life. It is the 
Greek society which is capable of 
helping you achieve this goal." 

The conference moved to a more 
specific topic with a speech entitled 
"What The Greek Societies Can 
Do For Washington College Social 
Life." This speech was given by 
Mrs. Donald Sanders, National 
Second Vice President of Alpha 
Omicron Pi from Alexandria, Vir- 
ginia, and Mrs. Walter Mylander, 
Extension Chairman of Alpha Om- 
icron Pi from Stevensville, Mary- 
Baby-Sitting Suggested 

The floor was opened to an in- 
formal discussion of possible Greek 
projects on campus and in the 
community. Several suggestions 
were made such as a Panhellenic 
Halloween party for faculty chil- 
dren, a Panhellenic baby sitting 
service on campus, or a Panhellen- 
ic blood bank. These and other 
ideas were discussed with the vis- 
itors from other colleges and uni- 

Possibly the most practical and 
informative part of the Panhellen- 
ic Conference was the discussion 
held by Mrs. J. Allen Frear on 

ways rush had been handled suc- 
cessfully and warned of situations 
which should be avoided. Specific 
plans for next year's rush program 
were discussed and approved. 
"Scholarship Standards" 

Mrs. Kawley H. Johnson, Pres- 
ident of Province III, Alpha Chi 
Omega, Rockville, Maryland and 
Mrs. Raymond L. Suppes, Nation- 
al Extension and Planning Com- 
mittees, Alpha Chi Omega, from 
Chevy Chase, Maryland, conclud- 
ed the conference with a formal 
program entitled "Scholarship, Ser- 
vice, and Standards." 

"Scholarship standards of fra- 
ternities," they both stated, "should 
be higher than that of the average 

great deal of faith in you and your 
capabilities or you would not be 
here at college. Meet your obliga- 
tions," they urged, "and take full 
advantage of the opportunities put 
before you at Washington College." 
Service Is Satisfying 
"Greek service is not restricted 
to philanthropic projects," they 
said. "Serve by working on your 
own campus and with alumni 
groups. And most important, help 
your own members with academic 
and personal problems. Nothing 
can be more rewarding and satisfy- 
ing than service to others.

Stressing "open partisanship" as 
fundamental to the full exchange 
of ideas, the program's planners 
sought an individual who had de-

ground and a commitment to a 
social movement, according to

The Reverend Malcolm Boyd, 
the "expresso priest" and contem- 
porary apostle of religion in the 
vernacular, will be on the Wash- 
ington College campus Monday 
night to present a lecture at 8 p.m. 
in William Smith Auditorium. 

Reknowned for his methods of 

making religion relevant to modern 

society, the Episcopal priest has 

just finished a scries of appearances 

as a night club performer at San 

Francisco's "hungry- i," where his 

act included readings from his book 

of unorthdox prayers, Are You 

Running With Me, Jesus? 


A former advertising executive, 

television and Hollywood producer, 

rtd Malcolm Boyd was Or- 

al id I 

Rev. Boyd is 
to the church 
that it should get off its ass." He 
believes that the message of Chris- 
tianity should go where the people 
are, whether he finds them in 
churches or in bars. 

Sex, Race, and the Church 
His message is delivered through 

anecdotal ad libs on such subjects 
as premarital sex, homosexuality, 
integration, and the institutional 
church, which are designed to 
break down the gulf between "po- 
lite ministers of the Establishment 
and other people." 

Boyd, who delivered his prayers 
at Washington Cathedral with 
Charlie Byrd on guitar, states that 
"when people talk about evangel- 
ism, they talk about Ghana or 
some faraway place, not the bar 

Peppered With Obscenities 

The minister has won ecclesias- 
tical disapproval by writing plays 
"peppered with cuss words." In 
1964 at Detroit's Wayne State Un- 
iversity, his play Boy was banned 
on the grounds thai it contained 
"obscene and vulgar" language. 

In 1961, Boyd participated in a 
Freedom Ride from New Orleans 
to Detroit and is widely known 
as a fighter for civil rights and 
human liberties of every kind. The 
civil rights movement was the re- 
cipient of the $4000 salary he earn- 
ed during the past month at the 
"hungry i," a San Francisco night 

As field secretary of the Episco- 
pal Society for Cultural and Racial 
Unity, Malcolm Boyd stilt finds 

Rev. Malcolm Boyd, the "expresso 
priest" who created nationwide 
sensations with his unorthodox 
prayers and sermons, has also been 
dubbed "Disturber of the Peace" 
and "a member of the Break- 
through Generation." 

The last time the British invad- 
ed the area, Kitty Knight staunch- 
ly drove them back single handed 
— or so the story goes. 

Tomorrow, a band o' Scottish 
laddies (and a lassie) will try to 
take Chestertown by storm; Kitty 
Knight is long gone and rumor has 
it that they'll succeed. 

Pipe Whiney Tunes 

Dressed in colorful kilts and 
piping whiney tunes bound in tra- 
dition, the Denny and Dunipace 
Pipe Band of Washington, D. C, 
will lead the Washington College 
Homecoming parade through the 
streets of Chestertown Saturday af- 

Formed a year ago, the band 
has since won the Class B Pipe- 
Band Clumpionship at the Dela- 
ware Highland Games and the an- 
nual Irish Counties Association 
Fies (festival) in the Bronx, N. 
Y., and finished second in the Class 
B competition at the annual Round 
Hill Highland Games, Stamford, 

Chisholm Piper Champion 

Pipe Major John Chisholm, a 
native of Inverness, Scotland, is 
the leader of the band. Chisholm 
is a champion piper in his own 
right, having won most of the ma- 
jor piping awards in his native 
Scotland before coming to Amer- 
ica in 1958. 

Denny and Dunipace is a family 
band in the true sense of the word. 
The Earley family — Frank (the 
father) ; Jerry, age 15; Rose Ann, 
16; and Stewart, 13 — make up 
half of the pipe section. Three 
members of the Carey family — 
Bob (the father); Tim, age 13; 
and Rob, 14; add two more pip- 
ers and a drummer to the contin- 
gent, and Drum Sgt. Walt Birtlcs 
now has his son, Ronny, age 14,

Honor System 

As Washington College expands both physically 
and academically it must constantly question and ex- 
amine its education policies and search for new ideas 
and concepts to encourage the self-development of the 
individual. One such concept which remains to be ex- 
plored by Washington College is the Honor System. 

The Honor System is based on the belief that stu- 
dents can successfully take the responsibility of estab- 
lishing and maintaining standards in social and aca- 
demic life. Entailed in this concept are such things as 
student sclf-proctoring of examinations, student self- 
scheduling of examinations, and student self-respon- 
sibility for their social conduct. 

What are the implications of such an Honor 
System? The effectiveness of the Honor System rests 
upon the high sense of inner morality of the student. 
When students pledge to abide by an Honor Code they 
arc indicating publicly their acceptance of the System 
and their intention to live by certain principles. 

That a violation of this Code should never occur 
is probably inconceivable. But students must resolve 
that their ideals shall be maintained, whatever pen- 
alties must be imposed to maintain them. 

Implicit in the Honor Code is the requirement 
that a student report an infraction of which he has 
firsthand knowledge. Occasionally, there is the tend- 
ency to feel that his requires spying or "tattling." 
There is sometimes a tendency to feel that to report 
another's breach of honor is to deprive honor of its 
personal sanctity. 

For any code of rules or Honor System to be effec- 
tive, however, there must exist two forms of social 
control: one is an individual, inner morality resulting 
from religion, education, and public opinion; and the 
other is an external control, law. Although distinct in 
their mode of operation, these two forms of control are 

For the vast majority of students, the Honor Code 
will take the first form, that of a set of personal ideals 
or code of conduct. In a group of persons with varied 
backgrounds and different moral standards, however, 
there are always some, who, for a time at least, must 
be made to understand that dishonorable conduct has 
temporal penalties also, one of which may be a forced 
separation from the group whose integrity they have 

It has generally been the conviction of the many 
schools that use the Honor System that dishonor will 
never be curtailed by curtailing honor, and that those 
few who are weak will never be strengthened by 
weakening those many who arc strong. It is for this 
reason that the Elm suggests careful consideration of 
the establishment of an Honor System at Washington

Guitars and Coffee 
To Make The Scene 

By Alison Howell 

Washington College has defin- 
ately lacked a place where students 
can go on weekends to simply sit 
and talk, drink coffee and be en- 
tertained. There's always the snack 
bar — but how much atmosphere 

The idea of an on-campus cof- 
fee house was brought up at the 
first meeting of the Mt. Vernon 
Literary Society. It was decided 
that since the nearly defunct or- 
ganization has no real function, a 
project such as the coffee house 
would be worthwhile. 

Gibson Approves 

A Board of Directors was form- 
ed, consisting of Dean Westerdahl. 
Dr. Norman James, Mr. Timothy 
Maloney and students Cliff Hartkey, 
Brian Manson and Alison Howell. 
The idea and plans for the coffee 
house were presented to President 
Gibson who gave Ins whole-hearted 

Once the idea was approved, a 
desirable on-campus location had 
to be found. Dr. Nathan Smith's 
former residence, scheduled to be 
torn down, was suggested and ap- 
proved. It has two large rooms 
downstairs, a fireplace and kitchen 
facilities. The upper floors will be 
closed off temporarily until the 
coffee house is in full operation.

The four mentioned were starters on last year's team, the

pionship team, lake away its champions and what do you have— 
this year's soccer team. 

There is no doubt in Coach Alhey's mind or anyone on the 
squad that the seed is present for a good team. However, the 
seed lies with talented, but inexperienced freshmen like Barry 
Drew, Joe Nichols, Dave Isherwoodj Pete Johnson, Bob Lehman 
and others. 

This talent is not yet developed, and until it is the soccer 
team will have to rel) primarily or drivej hustle and spirit to win

have plenty of trouble.

Washington Players Focus 
Upon Salem Witch Trials 

The Washington College Play- 
ers will open their fall season No- 
vember 10, 11, 12 with The Cru- 
cible, a drama about the devastat- 
ing consequences of the Salem 
witch trials. The hounding to 
death of nonconformist John Proc- 
tor constitutes the main theme of 
this Arthur Miller tragedy. 

Contemporary cthnocentrism is 
reflected to a large degree in the 
character portrayals. Prejudice, 
mass hysteria, and fanaticism could 
easily be carried to their limits in 
the Puritan Village of Salem, 
Massachusetts. Religious beliefs 
were distorted by fear and ignor- 
ance to the extent that superstition 
became a dominant part of life, 
creating mass hysteria over unex- 
plainablc events. 

Forest Frivolities 

In The Crucible, several girls 
caught in defiance of Puritan stan- 
dards try to justify their actions. 
Their dancing in the forest implied 
a rendezvous with the devil, as 
did frivolities or any type. To es- 
cape punishment, the girls falsely 
accuse others of witchcraft. Snow- 
balling, the entire community is 
disrupted. No one can evade the 
damning accusation. If one strong 
character does stand up against the 
confused mass conformity, the mob 
will turn against him. John Proc- 

rcached in the historic Salem witel 
trials of 1692. Although the de 
veloprnent and denoument are bas 
ed on historic fact, marked con 
temporary overtones reflect the tur 
bulent era of the McCarthy trial 
at the time when The Crucibl. 
was first presented.

Rev. Boyd, author of Are You 
Running With Me, Jesus?, spoke

that it should get off its ass."

are unhappy people. I say that the 
church in its fundamental sense is 
dealing with these things, and this 
is the underground church," con- 
tinued Boyd. 

Worship Religion, Not God 

Discussing problems that have 
beset the church, Boyd stated that 
"people art- worshipping religion 
instead of God." He went on to 
say that the new generation will 
not accept this practice. 

Boyd had some sharp words for 
Sunday school programs, telling the 
audience that Sunday schools made 
more atheists than Nikita Khrush- 
chev ever could. 

Church Failure In Walls 

Boyd termed the Watts situa- 
tion as a "revolution, not a riot." 
He said that conditions in Watts 
imprisoned the Negro and kept 
him contained in the ghetto. Boyd 
cited the failure of the church to 
exercise leadership in Watts as one 
of the underlying causes for the

7 sfefeu Lambda's Win Football Cup; 

THE WASHINGTON elm Tennis, Soccer Scheduled 




By Dick Louck 

(Elm soccer columnist Dick Louck is a member of the 
S ho' men Soccer team.) 

The Washington College soccer team finally put every- 
thing together in the right places last Saturday for a stunning 
defeat of Homecoming guest Lycoming College. The players 
seemed to sense victory from the beginning, and determined ef- 
fort and teamwork led to the 6-0 victory, the first for the Sho'- 
men in four outings. 

Coach Athey, early in the week bejore the game, found a 
scoring combination which clicked by moving Dave Isherwood 
to the center forward position and changing back to the five 
man front line, which emphasizes the offense. This alignment 
is only possible with superb wing halfback play, adequately 
supplied by Cliff Hankey and Barry Drew. 

One sour note on an otherwise beautiful afternoon in last 
Saturday's win was the injury to Barry Drew, a knee injury 
which will keep him sidelined for, hopefully, only one week. 
Barry had to leave the game before the Sho'men unloaded on 
the hapless Warriors from Lycoming, and Jay Schwartz took 
over the difficult halfback slot. 

A winning spirit, and a credo, contrary to the old cliche 
that it's not whether you win or lose, but how you played the 
game, helped the Sho'men to victory! This credo, scribbled by 
some amateur bard on the blackboard before the game stated 
simply: "If you don't play to win, then why keep score?" 

The score told the story of Saturday's game. The Sho'men 
dominated the game both offensively and defensively. Dick 
Checket played perhaps the best game of his career, scoring 
two goals and generally playing, as he admits, "better than I 
ever thought I could, I can't understand it." 

The "new look" Sho'men met Western Maryland Mon- 
day, Loyola yesterday, and take on the always tough Mt. St. 
Mary's team Saturday on Kibler Field. Several fans commented 
that the team was finally playing as a team in Saturday's game. 
To come out on the winning side after meeting this week's 
foes will take plenty of teamwork. 

Western Maryland has a potential All-American in goalie 
Coburn, and an offensive threat in their right wing. Loyola 
usually has a good team, and this year should be no exception, 
since they lost only one goal to perennial powerhouse Baltimore 
U. Then there is Mt. St. Mary's. Let me say only that they 
beat Randolph-Macon handily. This same Macon team swamn

Tough Defense 

In playing the final game against 
Kappa Alpha, the Lambda's en- 
countered an unexpectedly tough 
defense. The first half of the game 
ended in a scoreless tic as the 
Lambda Chi's made numerous long 
gains only to be stopped by a tough 
KA goal line squad. Lambda Chi 
offensive blockers were able to give 
quarterback Harry Webb plenty of 
time to throw the ball but the KA 
pass defenders made a number of 
saves deep in their own territory. 

The second half begain with the 
Lambda Chi offense again making 
long gains until, finally, quarter- 
back Harry Webb threw a 30 yard 
touchdown pass to end John Men* 
dell for the game's only score. De- 
fensively, the Lambda's were able 
to keep the KA's deep in their 
own territoy for most of the game. 
The KA's only scoring threat of 
the game was eliminated when 
Lambda Chi defensive safety. Alan

"For example, Republicans have

Some specific elections will also

iber of Washington Col- 
lege. The letter to the Sun, written 
as Bishop Allen Miller of the local 
Episcopal diocese was bringing 
heresy charges against Bishop 
James Pike, was a defense of the 
integrity of Bishop Pike. 

"A great many people do not 
realize," the Kent County News 
stated, "that such a letter repre- 
sents only the view of the author, 
not his employees," The Newi 
attributed Dr. Tapke's use of his 
title to the fact that "Without 
the title, he'd be a 'nothing'."

"To try Bishop Pike for heresy,' 

vholi- point of such

doctrines in a non-literal way." 

Intellectual Backwater 

Professor Tapke suggested to 
Bishop Miller, finally, that he 
could find more constructive things 
to do than prosecute Bishop Pike 
for heresy, noting that such action 
was bound to convey to the general 
public an image of the Eastern 
Shore as a "refuge of intellectual 
backwardness and reaction."

To Earn 

Outrun Loyola 
.500 Win Mark 

By Dick Louck 


' says that Washington College has a 
n, deny it. With five of the starting eleven injured 
t with injuries, this team that beat 
favored Mt. St. Mary's last Saturday is not good — it's great! 
Coach Athey contributed the win to hustle; to that I would like 
to add two other ingredients - heart, and one of the most confus- 
ing and uncoordinated offense's ever presented on Kibler plain. 
The Sho'men obviously outhustled the visiting Mount, but in 
addition, the switching wide-open kick and run offense of the 
Sho'men confused the Mount defense sufficiently to all several 
point-blank shots at the goal. On the other end, Al Perry turned 
in an excellent performance in the Sho' goal. 

The win, only the second for the injury-ridden squad, was a 
welcome and happy ending to an otherwise unhappy week. No 
one likes a tie, but Western Maryland thought that better than 
. a loss as they knotted last Monday's fracas at 2-2 late in the 
■ fourth quarter to send the game into overtime, which also went 

Last Wednesday the Sho'men found that they had grabbed a 
big green Catholic tiger by the tail in the person of the Loyola 
College team, as they floundered under a 3-0 loss. The Grey- 
hounds (Greyhounds?!) controlled the game very well, and the 
Sho'men suffered a humiliating defeat by the not too likeable 

ence record at 3-3. 

Sho' Depth 

The Greyhounds' Andy Carter 
easily took first place, but the Sho'- 
men's Bob Bittenbender, Sam Mar- 
tin, and Ben Whitman took the 
next three positions. 

Dave Stokes, Buddy Jastram, 
Dave Cohn, Bill Leonard, and Lem 
Harris took the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 
and 1 1th slots to be within thirty 
seconds of each other and to se- 
cure the victory for Washington 

Bittcnbender's Best Race 

Last Saturday Bittenbender and 
Martin produced their best races 
of the season running against the 
Mounts. Bittenbender lost to Else! 
by only five seconds and Martin 
showed his mettle by copping 
fourth place. 

In these two races Cohn, Stokes 
and Harris improved their best 
times for the season which, accord- 
ing to Coach Chatellier, "may well 
prove to be the decisive factor in 
the upcoming meets." 

So far Coach Don Chatellier has 
had to depend heavily on his first 
three runners. However, it looks 
as if whatever he gets 

FOUR NEW ENGLANDERS: Cross Country standouts a

Tomorrow the Sho'men will 
travel to Doylestown, Pa., to face 
Delaware Valley and Pennsylvania 
Military College in a tri-mect. This 
is a crucial race because it will de- 
termine whether or not the thin- 
clads will have a winning season. 

Last year the Sho'men lost to 
Delaware Valley 27-30 and were 
thoroughly outclassed by P, M. C. 

Chatellier commented that, "we 
haven't really had a tough meet 
this season in which every member 
of the team was tested at the same 
time, but competing in these two 
dual meets at once should prove 
to be the biggest challenge of the

Football Title 

The 1966 intramural football

Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity after 
their 6-0 victory over the Outcasts. 

' The Lambdas had previously won 
the fraternity cup with a regular 
season victory over the Theta Chis. 
To get to the championship 
game and to earn the right to meet 
the Outcasts, the Lambdas de- 
feated Theta Chi hy a 7-6 score. 
Mike Kelly scored the touchdown 
and important extra point, snaring 
passes from Harry Webb on both 
occasions. The Theta score came 

, on a long pass from Carl Ortman 
tojim Chalfont. But the defending 
league champs could not execute 
a successful extra point, and this 
■proved to be the difference.

Susquehanna has two of the fin-

Coach Chatellier feels that "the 
Susquehanna meet can go cither

be our toughest M.A.C. foe." If 
the Sho'men can split these last 
four meets, they will produce the 
best record Chatty has had here

An enthusiastic approach to 
Alumni relations marks the style 
of Douglass Gates, new Director 
of Alumni at Washington College, 
replacing Bedford Groves, who is 
serving as Director of Public Events 
and Director of Student Placement. 

A member of the 1959 graduat- 
ing class of Washington College, 
Mr. Gates has firsthand knowledge 
of some of the inadequacies of the

ed by 
n the 


Referendum Vote 

Last Friday's less than one-third turnout for the 
Freshman Steering Committee referendum was dis- 
appointing, but not unpredictable. 

As is the case with issues that do not immediately, 
or for that matter, ever, affect the current voting pub- 
lic, it is natural for students not to care enough about 
the issue to vote either for or against it. 

However, looking at just the substantive issue in- 
volved in the referendum, there is little to be said 
against the idea of a Freshman Steering Committee. 
(As a matter of fact, an overwhelming majority of 
those voting in last Friday's ill-fated referendum voted 
for the Committee.) 

The purpose of the Steering Committee is to give 
the Freshman Class informal leadership for class func- 
tions such as the Homecoming float, stunt night and 
Christmas dinner. In previous years, the Freshman 
class has had no leadership until it elected officers 
second semester. This has hindered first semester plan- 
ning of class events. 

While the issue may be uninspiring, let us not drag 
it out any further. The Elm urges students to vote 
affirmatively Monday, when the Student Government 
Association will once again try to garner the neces- 
sary two-thirds vote. 

Agnew Triumphs 

One astute television commentator election night 
observed, "You know there is something wrong with 
a candidate who has a slogan like 'A Home Is Your 
Castle' and signs it to the tune of 'Bells of Saint 
Mary.' " 

A plurality of Maryland voters seemed to agree 
with this assessment of Gubernatorial candidate 
George Mahoney and decided that they did not want 
to be entombed in a "castle" while the rest of the 
world passes them by. Hence came the election of 
Spiro T. Agnew as governor of Maryland. 

All is not rosy for Mr. Agnew as he takes over the 
governorship, however. He is not a man of immense 
ability, and he will probably find it difficult to face 
the massive problems of Maryland. No doubt com- 
pounding his problems will be a predominantly Dem- 
ocratic state legislature. He will have 
his political skills and learn some new ones. 

Democracy is simply the right to choose be 
alternatives. While neither alternative in the Mary- 
land race was superb, the better man did win. 

of the Alumni 
Chapters, he indicated that the 
groups were to remain under the 
control of the individuals in each 
of the groups. Whatever assistance 
his office is able to provide to help 
the chapters with plans, projects 
and ideas is eagerly given, Mr. 
Gates remarked. 

Five Big Aims 
The new Director has five ob- 
jectives which he keeps in mind 
while working with and for the 
Alumni Chapter groups: 1 ) To 
keep the Alumni informed of Col- 
lege developments; 2) To improve 
the organization within the Alumni 
Chapter groups; 3) To encourage 
Alumni to keep in touch with the 
Alumni Office, informing them of 
the latest personal news and 
achievements: 4) To promote the 
"selling" of the College by Alumni 
to prospective students; 5) To

Mac Kown commented that the 
poll was the only one, to his know-

were marked by Negroes.

the white votes and 44.4 percent 
of the Negro ballots. Mahoney 
garnered 37.9 percent from white

The Washington College chap-

was formed this semester by a

Nuclear War is a game popular 
with Washington students. By 
playing various "warhead", "roc- 
ket", and "population" cards, ama- 
teur politicians try to gain control 
of the world through actual power 
techniques or alliances. The end 
of the game is reached when no 
one is left alive or one country 

Two other games now in the 
designing stage are Double Think 
which is a Central- Intel I ig<*ncr- 
Agency-type spy game, and Su- 
premacy, a war game involving 
a fictional continent with each 
player commanding a country. 

Several of the war games, in- 
cludirig Nuclear War, are sold in 
the College bookstore. The intent 
participants buy additional equip- 

War 1 1 helmets, guns, and fa- 
tigues to complement their games.

This finding startled the leader

admission to medical school."

him to question the adequacy of

Coach AiIut, el the soccer team, labeled iliis as a building 
year for his young squad. With three panics left to be played 
— two of those rescheduled because of previous had weather— 
this year's team could, at best, have only a mediocre 4-5-1 
. record. 

Injuries, inexperience and inclement weather were the 
main factors in this year's poor showing. Yet, with a poor 
record and no chance for any kind of championship this year. 
Coach Athey remains in good spirits. Mr has good reason for 

The entire offensive line will return next year, barring 
unforseen difficulties, or in a word — academics. Goalie Perry 
will return with a solid defense in front of him which has had 
a year's experience. Halfback returnees Jay Schwartz, Ford 
Schumann, Bob Lehman and odiers will also help. 

As a matter of fact. Coach Athey will have practically 
the same team next year as he did this year. Where then, will 
come the improvement? Here, experience is the key word. 
But another important factor must be considered. 

Sho'men opponents in league play will in many cases be 
hit harder than Washington College. Hopkin's spark plug

land's Cnhurn and others on that team. Mt. St. Mary's will 
lose both of their star wings. Delaware, Loyola, and Randolph 
Macon will lose key players through graduation. 

I don't want in sound too optimistic at this time, primar- 
ily because of the always teuiLing spectre of the academic 
axe rutting away some key players from next year's Sho' 
squad, but on the surface, Coach Athey must be looking for- 
ward to renewed success by future soccer squads. For the 
present, this year's squad must now try to salvage what they 
can from an otherwise dismal season by winning these last

A Ballet Kevieui . y-v -m- y — — 

Romeo and juiietj Urug Usage Reported 

Widespread In USA 

' By Donald Dolce ■ 

The entire concept of reducing 

to one's aesthetic appeal. For in 
reducing it, the ballet loses its vi- 
brancy and vitality that are so 
prevalent during a live perform- 
ance. Such was the fate of the film- 
ed ballet Romeo and Juliet, per- 
formed by the Royal Ballet Com- 
pany, with score by Serge Proko- 

Thc ballet is currently being 
shown around the country. 
Wider Audience 

A similar experience could be 
seen with the television production 
of Arthur Miller's Death of a 
Salesman last season. The motive 
behind this process — to bring the 
fine arts to a wider audience (and 
to record it for posterity) — is 
noble, althought it is impossible 
to appreciate the ballet fully as a 

With this in mind, the produc- 
tion of Romeo and Juliet is one of 
particular interest. The box office 
"sell appeal" is obviously Rudolf 
Nureyev. Yet those who expect 
to see his magnificent leaps will 
be disappointed because they do 
not exist here. What will be found, 
however, is one of Nureyev's most 
powerful performances, and one 
which enhances his image as the 
danseur noble of the world. His 
graceful portrayal of Romeo is a 
resplendent effort. 

Dame Fonteyn Absorbing 

Dame Margot Fonteyn presents 
an absorbing yet restrictive Juliet. 
At forty-six, she is hardly able t 



,nd foolhardy 
act indeed, my friends. Without 
astrology, what would have become 
of such men as Zoroaster, Anaxa- 
goras, Virgil, Tycho Brahe, John 
Milton and countless others whose 
lives make a history of the world? 
Whoever is responsible for Zolar's 
removal can count on much hoot- 



Romeo who stays in one's mind af- 
ter the performance. 

The supporting actors are also 
excellent. David Blair as Mercutio 
and Desmond Doyle as Tybalt are 
masterful, especially in their duel 

Difficult To Match 
The production has a grandeur 
which is difficult to match. The 
beautiful costumes and sets are not 
generally unecessarily gaudy, but, 
at times, they tend to take one's 
attention from the dancers. This 
is especially true in the ball scene 
at the Capulet's house. One defin- 
ite fault is the quality of the film. for other than

Alice Lake, who wrote the Sev- 
enteen artiele, and who interview- 

ed teen-agers from all walks of life 
to supplement the survey, conclud- 
es: "The world of drugs contains 
every clement appealing to youth's 
conforming nonconformity," A col- 
lege freshman told her, "Taking 
drugs is the cool thing to do . . . 
It's in." Pressure from the crowd 
is another factor inducing teen- 
agers to try drugs. ("I couldn't 
say no, not be part of the group," 
explained a 15-year-old from Il-

Now local boards are harder press-

drafting those who fail to make 
Selective Service grades. 

Part-time students are no longer

have been requiring students to 
carry a full schedule to be defined 
as "full time." Previously, students 
were often allowed to carry three- 
quarters of a normal year's load 
and were still considered full time. 
Now hoards are asking their 2-S

of a four-year program each year.

Independent Chapters 

The ten chapter groups of the 
Washington College Alumni Asso-

main Alumni Office, all remain 
under the supervision of the indi- 
viduals in each group. 

Purposes of the Association 
which will be impressed upon stu-

encouraging alumni to keep in 
touch with the Alumni Office ; and 
stimulating the amount and per-

Perhaps the most important 
function of the Association to be

Proceeds from the traditional 
event will go to the senior class. 
The program will consist of ten- 
minute skits performed and written 
by members of Greek and inde- 
pendent groups on campus. These 
skits, which have been censored by 
the senior class officers, are puns 

familiar to all. The price of 
admission, according to Class Presi- 
dent Joe Coale, is $.50 a head. 

Championship Race 

Saturday the festivities will con- 
tinue with a dance and the cross-

Moment to Relate 
Man and Science 

"Science and Human Purpose" 
will be the topic of a lecture by 
Dr. Gairdner Moment, Professor 
of Biology at Goucher College, this 
afternoon at 1:30 in William Smith 

A graduate of Yale University, 
Dr. Moment is the author of a 
widely used text in college zoology 
and of numerous papers in the 
field of animal growth and regen- 
eration. He also published "Sci-

Thanksgiving, 1966 

In many homes both in this country and in North 
and South Vietnam, there is a vacant seat at the 
dinner table. As we prepare to head home for Thanks- 
giving, 1966, we arc, as glaringly as ever, confronted 
with one of the greatest dilemmas of human society. 
Mankind prays for peace and yet we still live in a 
state of international anarchy and war. 

What all of us can do, when we sit down to that 
traditional Thanksgiving Day feast, is to pause — 
evaluate ourselves and our own society first to gain 
perhaps some valuable insights into the causes of this 

In 1789, George Washington, in his Thanksgiving 
Day proclamation, proposed thanks for constitutional 
government which was the servant rather than the 
master of the people. Let us hope that the governments 
of the world collectively may become servants and 
of the people. 

Disquieting Figure 

Reverend Malcolm Boyd was recently included in a "Life" 
magazine list of the one hundred most influential Americans. 
His recent visit to Chestertown demonstrated why he was chosen 
for this distinction. 

Mr. Boyd was a disquieting figure in Chesiertown. He was 
also an inspirational one. He feels, as do many realists within 
the clergy, that to reach the people he must leave the altar and 
join other forces in society. From the altar Mr. Boyd comes, 
approaching the people the churches miss. In a night club act 
offering "pop prayers", with Charlie Byrd on a jazz recording, 
or on one hundred twenty campuses yearly he tries to "get 
tli rough". 

It is now readily apparent that his rec 
town has kindled a new spirit — one which 
doctrines of the church and of the commi 
student concern imparted by Mr. Boyd has materalized into sev- 
eral campus projects. The tutorial program, the result of th> 
minal Boyd visit, has become the target of regenerated 
As a result of the lecture, the Wesley Club has established plans 
for a program calculated to supervise after-school activity at 
Garnett Elementary School. The club has also issued an invita- 
tion to Reverend Richard R. Hicks to address a campus forum. 
Mr. Hicks has been asked why Negroes in Chestertown are not 
pulling themselves out of their desperate conditions. 

The Student Senate has arranged for Mr. C. David Haacke, 
mayor of Chestertown, to speak here Tuesday. Mayor Haacke 
will speak on substandard housing in Chestertown. The Ches- 
tertown clergy, also seemingly moved by Mr. Boyd, has estab- 
lished a conference headed by Reverend Robert T. Hollett of 
Emmanuel Episcopal Church. The conference pi; 
nation of local civic problems. 

To the traditionalists who take offense at Mr. Boyd's candid 
style, we can offer only a pragmatic retort— he did "get through." 

-A Play Review- 

Didacticism Marks Crucible 

.By Donald Dolce 

It was unfortunate that the first 
professionally directed performance 
of the Washington College Players 
had to be Arthur Miller's The 
Crucible. The play was presented 
November 10, 11. and 12.'

The "message" comes through loud 
and clear, but due to the theme's 
repetition in our own time, it loses 
the impact. (This "message play" 
idea is also apparent in Miller's 
recent After The Fall.) 

The dialogue in Act I becomes 
trite too often, but this is partially 
i < mp'.''d for in Act II. 
Court Room Scene 

The culminating court room 
scene demonstrates the play's best 
and worst aspects. The tension is 
built up well, but too often there 
is excessive noise just for the sake 
of making sounds for the audience. 

An effective contrast to this is 
John Merrill, who is loud only 
when necessary and is particularly 
good. Freshman Peter Herbs t 
gave the most outstanding perfor- 
mance of the evening. His John 
Proctor was a compasionate man 
whose anguish and hope were 
superbly shown by Mr. Herbst.

China's Future Boss 

A Political Profile 

Chinese Defense Minister 
Seen As Heir Apparent 

Of Lin Piao 

by Dr. Thomas S. An 
(Editors note: Dr. Thomas S. 
An, Assistant Professor of Political 
Science, is Director of the Inter- 
national Studies Program at Wash- 
ington College. Dr. An's most re- 
cent article appeared in the July- 
August issue of Problems of Com- 

In the midst of the current na- 
tion-wide upheaval in Communist 
China which Peking euphemisti- 
cally calls "the Great Proletarian 
Cultural Revolution," Marshall Lin 
Piao's star has risen dramatically 
as the leading contender for Mao 
Tse-tung's mantle. Defense Minister 
Lin is currently the sole official 
propagator and interpreter of the 
Maoist Communist dogma. Chair- 
man Mao is now old and feeble 
and appears to have left the mun- 
dane affairs of the state and party 
to the 58-year-old Marshall Lin. 
Lin's name is appearing more fre- 
quently in the press as the authori- 
tative voice of the Peking hier- 
archy. For the China Watchers, it 
is now difficult to tell just where 
Chairman Mao's authority ends 
and Mr. Lin's begins. 

Major Casualties 

So far, the major casualties in 

the recent hierarchical reshuffle in 

visiiuiist professionalism" that in- 
sisted on the strategic importance 
of nuclear weapons in modem war- 
fare and considered the Maoist 
strategic doctrine of "people war" 
(guerrilla warfare) dangerously an- 
achronistic as a defense against 
modern American technology. 
Eliminate 'Revisionists' 
Marshall Lin's army newspaper, 
Chieh-fang-chun Pao, has led the 
attack on the important Peking 
municipal branch of the Chinese 
Communist Party and also spear- 
headed the campaign t<> eliminate 
alleged "foreign, bourgeois and re- 
visionist" elements from Chinese 
society. He was recently called by 
the Chinese Communist press the 
"most intimate comrade-in-arms of 
Chairman Mao, his best disciple ' 
and best example in creatively ap- 
plying Chairman Mao's thought. 


China have 

. Lfti 

Shao-ch'i, P'eng Chen and Gen- 
eral Lo Jui-ch'ing, who may have 
not been full-fledged opponents but 
may have merely counseled to mod- 
ify some excesses of the Maoist 
Communist line. P'eng Chen, 67- 
year-old veteran revolutionary, who 
had been Mao's faithful follower 
since early revolutionary days, and 
his chief subordinates in the Pe- 
king Party Committee were purged 
last June. (According to reliable 
Hong Kong sources, P'eng is be- 
lieved to have committed suicide 
in prison.) Liu Shao-ch'i, head of 
state and formerly Mao's second- 
in-command, has not been purged 
yet, but has been brutally demoted 
from second to eighth place in of- 
ficial party rankings. Worse may 
be in store for him. General Lo, 
Chief of the General Staff of the 
Chinese Communist armed forces 
and former chief of secret police, 
has been absent from public view 
since November 1965. The recent 
Army Day (August 1) editorial of 
Chich-fang-chun Pao (Liberation 
Army Daily), a newspaper con- 
trolled by Marshall Lin and his 
Ministry of Defense, indicated that 
General Lo had been purged on 

king, Chairman Mao and Defense 
Minister Lin appeared in army 
uniform to symbolize his close re- 
lationship with Mr. Lin — his new 
choice as heir apparent. Marshall 
Lin spoke on Mr. Mao's behalf. 
Premier Chou En-lai, moreover, in 
his speeches, pointedly urged the 
Chinese people to "respond to the 
call of Comrade Lin Piao." In 
recent months, radio stations and 
newspapers throughout Communist 
China have inaugurated a massive 
"Learn From Comrade Lin Piao" 

Intensified Adulation 

In short, the campaign to glori- 
fy Lin Piao and underline his new 
role as heir apparent to Mao, Com- 
munist China's living deity, is now 
nu'n\lii lining and undisguised. 
The intensified adulation of Mar- 
shall Lin appears to be aimed 
partly at increasing his stature in 
preparation for his eventual suc- 
cession to Chairman Mao and part- 
ly at strengthening his hand for 
further purging of important party 
and government figures. 

In this connection, it is inter- 


ieful t 

: Mar- 

Mao Tse-tung's most trusted po- 
litical and military associates, with 
some exception, have been natives 
of the Provinces of Hunan (Mao's 
birthplace), Szer.huan and Hupeh. 
Marshall Lin Piao is from Hupeh. 

Lin Piao (his original name was 
Lin Yu-yung and the literal Eng- 

lish . 

..f Lin 

born in 1907 in Ungkung, Hupeh 
Province. His parents were of the 
lower middle class. His father own- 
ed a small textile mill and went 
bankrupt at the time of his grad- 
uation from elementary school. But 
bright boy and managed 

to attend middle school whe 
was attracted by political radical- 
ism. His left-wing orientation be- 
gan at the age of eleven. 
Honor Student 

After graduation from middle 
school in 1925, Lin gained admis- 
sion to the Whampoa Military 
Academy at Canton as a cadet of 
the fourth class. By this time he 
was already a member of the Com- 
munist Youth League, and joined 
the Chinese Communist Party in 

At Whampoa, Lin was an honor 
student and received intensive po- 
litical and military training under 
Chiang Kai-shek, the director, who 
was later to become President of 
Nationalist China ; Chou En-lai, 
political tutor, who is now the 
Chinese Communist Premier; and 
Russian General Bluechcr, Chiang's 
chief adviser. 

Colonel In Army 

Upon graduation from Wham- 
poa in 1926, Lin was commission- 
ed and participated in Chiang Kai- 
sheck's Northern Expedition of 
1926-27. He was soon promoted 
to captain and in 1927, at the age 
of 19, rose to colonel in the Fourth 
Kuomintang Army under Chang 

When Chiang Kai-shek turned 
against the Chinese Communists in 
August 1927, Lin abandoned his 
brilliant career in the Kuomintang 

the Communist insurgents at Nan- 
chang. After the Nanchang Up- 
rising was crushed he fled with 
Chu Teh to Kiangsi Province from 

aganist the Nationalists. 
Close To Mao 

In May, 1928 Lin met Mao 
Tae-tung at Chingkangshan in the 
Kiangsi hinterland for the first 
time. He has since been very close 
to Mao personally and politically. 
In the Communist camp Lin rose 
to prominence repadily. 

Lin Piao commanded a battalion 
in Chu Teh's 28th Regiment in 
the early days of its formation and 
in 1929 the Red Fourth Army for 
a while. In 1932, at the age of 24, 
he became the commander-in-chief 
of the First Red Army Corps, num- 
bering 20,000 rifles. Thereafter, he 

Communist-led uprisings and miti- 

Brilliant Military Scholar 

Marshal] Lin established a rep- 
tation as a brilliant military 

:holar and strategist in a protract- 

. Com 

Naiiimalists for control of China 
and during the Sino-Japanese war. 
It was his brilliant planning as 
well as First Army Corps that 
broke the deadly Nationalist en- 
circlement and led the legendary 
Long March (6,000 miles across 
18 mountain ranges and 24 rivers) 
of the Chinese Communists suc- 
cessfully to Yenan in 1935. 

In October, 1937 Lin's troops 
(the 115th Division of the Eighth 
Route Army) won the first major 
military victory against Japan by 
trapping and annihilating the Jap- 
anese 5th (Itagaki) Division in 
narrow P'ing-hsing Pass in north- 
eastern Shensi. But he was severely 
wounded in this battle and receiv- 
ed medical treatment in the Soviet 
Union between 1938 and 1942. 
While receiving medical treatment 
in Moscow, he also studied at the 
Soviet Red Army Academy. Upon 
his return to Chinese Communist 
wartime headquarters at Yenan in 
1942, he was made head of the 
Chinese Communist military acad- 
emy called "the Military Political 

University fon Resisting Japan." 
Military Base Established 
Immediately after the Japanese 
surrender in 1945, Lin descended 
upon Manchuria with about 100,- 
000 guerrillas. He had the crucial 
mission of consolidating the area 
as a base for the Chinese Commu- 
nist conquest of China proper. His 
mission was well accomplished and 
this enabled the Chinese Commu- 
nists to transform their forces from 
guerrilla units into something close- 
ly resembling a regular field army. 
In 1948, his troops conquered the 

Chinese Communist Party and 
Chinese society. In recent years, 
he has been obsessed with one 
problem above all others : the 
danger that his brand of commu- 
nism in China will degenrate after 
his death into Soviet-type revision- 
Two Maoist Goals 
Almost desperate in his final 
years, Mr. Mao seems intent on 
accomplishing two goals: (1) to 
wipe out the comfortable "bour- 
geois" temptations of Soviet-style 
revisionism in his Communist Party

entire northeastern China, to begin 
the final defeat of the Nationalist 
armies. His crack Fourth Field 
Army attacked the United Nations 
forces in Korea starting in Novem- 
ber, 1950. Reportedly he was again 
seriously wounded and surrendered 
his command to Marshall P'eng 

After the complete Chinese 
Communist triumph, Lin Piao held 
the important party, military and 
governmental positions in the Cen- 
tral South administrative region, 
with headquarters at Hankow, un- 
til 1954, when such areas were 
abolished. He dropped out of pub- 
lic sight in 1952 and was reported 
sick of tuberculosis or recuperating 
from wounds suffered in Korea. 
Lin Joins Politburo 

Lin became a Vice Premier and 
Vice Chairman of the National 
Defense Council in 1954. A year 
later Communist China for the 
first time created the rank of Mar- 
shall and General Lin was one of 
ten promoted to the rank. In 1955 
he was appointed a member of the 
Politburo of the Central Committee 
of the Chinese Communist Party. 
He was made additional Vice 
Chairman of the Central Commit- 
tee of the Party and member oi 
the Standing Committee of the 

: Chin 

nly , 

set — about 700 million Chinese 
people — by intensive "spiritual" 
indoctrination. By condemning the 
growth of materialism in Chinese 
society and calling for the creation 
of a new kind of human being, 
Chairman Mao has in fact replac- 
ed dialectical materialism with, in 
the words of Robert Elegant, "di- 
alectical spirituality." 

A great deal of evidences sug- 
gest that Mr. Mao is deeply dis- 
appointed with his Communist 
Party apparatus which, in his opin- 
ion, succumbed to the same temp- 
tations that corrupted centuries of 
Chinese officialdom, after having 
slain the monsters of capitalism. 
The key policy debate apparently 
took place within the ruling Cin- 
cse Communist hierarchy in Sep- 
tember 1965. At this meeting, 
Chairman Mao presumably laid 
down the doctrinal tine aimed at 
fully the 70-millio 


..ih. i 


L Of 

the Eighth National Party Congress 
in May, 1958. In September, 1959 
he succeeded Marshall P'eng Teh- 
huai as Defense Minister after the 
latter was purged. In the recent 
past, he became Chairman of the 
powerful Military Affairs Commit- 
tee of the Party's Central Com- 
mittee, a post formerly held by 
Mao Tse-tung. 

In summary, Marshall Lin Piao 
is a tough professional soldier to 
the care and one of Communist 
China's most competent and re- 
spected military leaders. He has 
a blend of "red" and "expert" and, 
unlike American generals, is a man 
with both brilliant strategic-tacti- 
cal abilities and wide-ranging po- 
litical training. Along with Mar- 
shall Chu Teh, he carried the high- 

in his country. 

Little is known of Lin Piao's 
family life except for his marriage 
in 1937 to Liu Hsi-hing and birth 
to them of a daughter and son. 



t Chair 

man Mao is personally directing 
the current purge with Marshall 
Lin's assistance. "The Great Pro- 
letarian Cultural Revolution,'' 
which is essentially a "spiritual" 
movement, is Mao's last attempt 
to restore ideological purity to the 

dogmatic "Great Leap Forward" 
as well as for the contingency of 
an attack by the United States as 
a result of the escalation of the 
Vietnam war. (In 1965 Peking's 
spokesmen expressed a genuine fear 
that the United States would ex- 
tend the Vietnam war to the Chin- 
ese mainland. B u t Communist 
China seems to have taken no spec- 
ial steps to gird itself for clash.) 
But he was supported by only a 
minority within the Communist 
hierarchy, and the majority was 
in favor of pursuing more flexible 
policy in domestic as well as for- 

Mao decided to depend more heav- 
ily on Defense Minister Lin Piao, 
his most ardent and trusted dis- 
ciple, and his army. 

China's Wonder Boy 

Not only did Mao admire Mar- 
shall Lin personally. (Mao once 
called him "China's wonder boy.") 
He also admired the way Lin re- 
asserted, in 1959, the primacy of 
the Party over the army, especially 
restive professional army officers, 
and indoctrinated Chinese Com- 
munist armed forces in much the 
same fashion Mao wished to see 
all of China indoctrinated. 

Out of the alliance with Mar- 
shall Lin, then, came the "Great 
Proletarian Cultural Revolution" — 
the grand design to rejuvenate 
Mao's 40-year Communist revolu-

Top M.D. Thinclads 
Run Here Sunday 



By Dick Louck 

Score: Washingotn 4, Wagner 0, Well it's about time! And 
as they say in the comic strips, "It was a long hard season.'' 
Finally, the Sho'men put together some of the latent talent they 
had shown all season, aided a little by a lack of injuries to the 
tine squad, and bombed the outplayed pitch squad from 

Statcn Island. 

My c 

though this 

i that I lost an article by printing sort of 
irticle last week, on the chances of having a good team 
next year. It becomes a problem to find material for a column 
about a team with 3-6-1 record. As a consequence this edition 
of the column will be rather piecemeal. 

One aspect of the team which has been overlooked this 
year is the coach, Probably most of you readers have heard 
praise of Mr. Alhey in some way or another. I imagine few 
have ever heard the locker-room talk and some of the great 
experiences had by some of the members of his teams. 

I myself was consistently bewildered by Coach Athcy's lack 
of despair at having such a poor season. His spirit was, to say 
the least, indomitable. This spirit was infused " 
well, implemented by their refusal to give up 
team was lower in the standings than most socci 
Washington College have been. 

One highlight of this spirit was disclosed as 
spread around the locker room after last Friday's win over 
Wagner, that this win was Mr. Atliey's 99th in collegiate soccer. 
Several players were very anxious to play the previously can- 
celed game against Hofstra, for no other reason than to get 
that 100th win for the coach. 

An amusing parallel to this is that Coach Chatelliefs boys 
were equally devoted to the job of getting that 100th loss for 
their favorite coach. 

One sight especially makes one think how much Coach 
Athcy loves and enjoys working with his boys. There was a 
practice session where Coach Athcy was needed to fill one of 
the positions on the squad to complete the line-up. Trying to 
head the ball and wearing a baseball cap are definitely incom- 
patible, so turning the cap around Rooty Ka^ooty style. Coach 
Athcy continued to play, happy as a twenty-year-old schoolboy. 

Eternal spirit, it seems that's what the coach has. Pepper, 
enthusiasm, and a sincerity rarely found in people. Few others 
can command the respect that will force a player to sustain a 
"nicotine fit" rather than light up that relieving cigarette 
around the coach. 

If the resounding victory over Wagner is any indication of 
ear's squad, then I would say that next 
t be a repeat of this year's nosedive. •

Washington College will host 
the Mason-Dixon Cross-Counlry 
Championships this Saturday on 
Kiblcr Field. Eleven schools are 
expected to compete in the meet 
which will begin at 1:30 p.m. 

The Southern Division of the 
Mason-Dixon Conference will be 

Virginia: Randolph Macon, Ro- 
anoke, Bridgewatcr and defending 
champion Old Dominion. Entrants 
from the Northern Division, aside 
from the Sho'men, will be Cath-

lege of Washington, D. C, Johns 
Hopkins, Loyola and Towson State 
from the Baltimore area, and 
Mount St. Mary's from Emitts- 

Catholic U. Favored 

According to Sho'men mentor 
Donald Chatellicr, "the Catholic 
University runners must be con- 
sidered the prc-mcet favorites on 
the basis of their performances 
this season." Last week-end Cath- 
olic University passed up the Gal- 
laudet Invitational to compete in 
the NCAA College Cross-Country 
Championships in Wheaton, Ohio. 
Catholic University will be led by 
freshman standout Jerry Price who 
Chattellicr feels "is the man to 
beat in the race this Saturday." 

Other harriers who will be con- 
tending for some of the fifteen 
medals to be given are Dennis 
Patten (Towson), Steve Baldwin 
(Gallaudet), Jim Clarke (Mt. St.

lOth-Piace Finish 

The Washington College cross- 
country team will hope to improve 
upon last year's lOth-place finish. 
The Sho'men will be led by junior 
Ben Whitman who has placed 
35th and 37th respectively in the 
championships for the past two 
seasons. Sophomore Bob Bittenben- 
dcr finished 45th last season and 
freshman Sam Martin has yet to 
be tested in a championship meet. 
Others to compete for Washington 
College will be senior Dave Cohn. 
sophomores Lem Harris and Dave 
Stokes and freshman Bill Leonard. 

The meet will be run over Wash- 
ington College's new 4.25-mile 
course which will start on the prac- 
tice soccer field and finish on the 
track. Chatellicr has said that "the 
course as compared to others in 
the Mason-Dixon Conference is 
grassy and moderately hilly. '.

Unless Soviet military strategy 
has recently changed, Chestertown 
ranks far' down on the list of top 
priority American targets. The 
dubious priority honors belong in 
part to Chestertown's nearby 
neighbors — Washington, Phila- 
delphia, and Baltimore, although 
critics say the latter city gives the 
appearance of having been devas- 
tated for years. 

Chestertown Safe 

Should a nuclear holocaust pul- 
verize our urban neighbors, Ches- 
tertown is ideally located to re- 
ceive the resulting fallout in large 
doses, contaminating the Vitality 
of the local atmosphere. Alert lo- 
cal and college officials, aware of 
such potential dangers, joined with 
federal administrators to devise a 
defense and shelter plan to protect 
I he populace. 

Washington College, doing its 
part to meet the challenge of the 
times, purchased 
stuffs, and had shelter 
ignated on campus. Several gciger 
counters were acquired, although 
the mechanics of their operation 
no doubt remained a mystery to 
those outside the Science Depart- 

Bandaids Available 

Few medical supplies were stock- 
ed, under the somewhat dubious 
assumption that the nearby Kent 
and Queen Anne's Hospital could 
handle emergency relief quickly 
and efficiently, much in the same 
manner as the Student Health Ser- 
vice has operated in the past dur- 
ing periods of quietude. 

Alas and alack, as great crusades 
and reforms atrophy after their 
initial impact has subsided, so too 
has the Civil Defense drive drifted 
into the background. Little by lit- 
tle, the emergency food stockpile 
(aged Metrccal and all) has been 
turned over to the Food Services 
Director, presumably for incorpor- 
ation into the daily menu, and 
has not been replaced. The geiger 
counters, rusted and unused, may 
or may not be with us still. 
Bomb Age 

Only the fallout shelters remain. 
In the I950's, when people realized 
that they were indeed living in 
the Age of the Bomb, they scur- 
ried to build concrete blockhouses 
burrowed far beneath the ground. 
As the Bomb grew larger, the 
shelter theory was revised, and less 
substantial, often partially unen- 

tion against fallout 
the blast itself. 

Should the fateful day ever 
come, for example, students in such 
representative places as East Hall, 
Cain Gymnasium, and the third 
floor of William Smith Hall, will 
be content in the fact that their 
government has declared their lo- 
cations adequate protection acainst

appearing under the College's 
Louttit-George Lecture Series. 

John Dos Passos, who will speak 
in William Smith Auditorium to- 
day at 1 : 30, is widely known as a 
prolific writer and commentator on

ments arose in the attempts to 
include the Fine Arts courses in 
the curriculum, with particular at- 
tention to the fact that Music and 
Art will be offered as majors with- 
in the next few yean. 

"Good Solution" 
In the student Senate meeting, 
there were some arguments on dif- 
ferent aspects of the proposed 
changes. But there was strong 
general agreement that some 
changes were necessary, and that 

a reasonably good solution to the 
problems arising from the expan- 
sion of the Fine Arts curriculum. 
Dean of Men Carl Westerdahl at- 
tended the Senate meeting, and 
took the Senate's opinion to the 
faculty meeting, which began later 
that evening. 

Dean Newlin stated that the 
faculty were "quite influenced" 
by the reported strong endi 
ment of the proposals by the 
dents, and he feels that the Sen 
ate vote really "clinched the i 
ter" in the minds of some uj 
cided members of the faculty. 

Some of the specific points of 
disagreement and contention arose 
over the two year foreign language 
requirement. Some students feel 
that it is unfair to someone not 
proficient in the study of a foreign 
language to have to take four 
semesters of the course.

away, according to Cliesleriown 
Mayor C. David Haacke. 

Mayor Haacke, speaking before 
students, faculty and townspeople 
gathered in Hynson Lounge, No- 
vember 22, addressed himself to 
the problem of substandard 

ing in Chcstertown. 

Blighted Areas Under Study 
Conceding that Chcstertown has 
never made an effort to upgrade 
housing and, at present, has no 
minimum housing or health codes, 
die Mayor said that the Compre- 

planners Harland Bartholomew 
and i Associates, will determine 
which of Chestcrtown's blighted 
areas will b^ renewed and which 
will be- torn down. 

However, Mr. Haacke, in a low-

Twelve Seniors Selected 
For 'Who's Who' Honors 

Dos Passos' momentous trilogy, 
U.S.A., reflects his sharp observa- 
tions of the effects that the social 
and economic milieu have upon the 
individual. In his own words, the 
contemporary historian has been 
a composer of "a narrative pan- 
orama to which I saw no end." 

Volkmar Wentzel is a familiar 
name to those who read "National 
Geographic." His photographic 
expeditions have taken him to Mt. 

Representing Washington Col- 
lege, twelve seniors were recently 
nominated to Who's Who Among 
Students in American Universities 
and Colleges, Dr. Nicholas Newlin,

Who's Who recognition to under- 
graduates who have distinguished 
themselves both in academic stand-

Dr. Newlin explained that the 
criteria for selection is scholarship,

Faculty, Student Committee 
The committee at Washington 
College which nominated students 
for Who's Who was made up of 
both students and faculty mem- 
bers, with students predominating, 
according to Dean Newlin. The 
quota, based on the number of 
undergraduates enrolled in the col- 
lege was determined by the board 
of Who's Who. 

The names of the students and 
their qualifications were then sent 
to the Who's Who organization in 
Tuscaloosa, Alabama, which made 
the final selection of nominees. 
Those chosen were recently notified 
by letter.

ed the lack of "responsibility and 
morality" on the part of occupants 
and owners of such dwellings. 
However, the Mayor placed more 
emphasis on the responsibility of 
the former than that of the latter. 
"Repairs Are Futile" 

Carefully avoiding the use of the 
terms "slum" or "slum landlord," 
Mayor Haacke said, "It is futile 
for the owners of these prepcrtics 
to repair them. The repairs would 
just be torn up by the tenants." 

"Even if the properties were im- 
proved, increased rents would re- 
sult," he continued. "In some in- 
stances, tenants have expressed 
satisfaction with existing conditions 
rather than face increasing costs. 
Because of the low rents currently 
charged) many [teoplc beg to live 
in these houses." 

Lack Of Civic Action 

Although citing the need to ed- 
ucate occupants in the rcsp< n.-.ibili- 
ties of caring for properties they 
rent, the Mayor said that, at pre- 
sent, neither the Chestertown gov- 
ernment, itself, nor any private 
groups have any such program for

There were in fact "several judges

also more than three girls involved 
in naming witches in Salem. 

Dolce goes on: "The three girls

Housing Problem Confronts Town 


The Chesapeake Bay country is labelled 
ie "land of pleasant living." Yet for 
any years, the "pleasant living" has been 
strictly reserved "for whites only" as 
e main floor seats in its theaters. 

On and off, students and townspeople 
ive pecked gingerly at this unhappy 
oblem in our midst. Most have chosen 
■ ignore the problem. Maybe it would 

However, as the subject of Mayor 
Haacke's talk at Washington College 
seems to indicate, the unmentionable can 
no longer go unmentioned. Whether one 
calls them "slums" or "substandard" 
liousies, the appalling indecency of dwell- 
ings which appear ready to collapse of 

Will Chestertown's housing program im- 
prove these conditions? This is question- 
Mayor Haacke demonstrates little un- 
derstanding of the "life-styles" of poverty. 
He repeatedly emphasizes that the lack 
of "responsibility and morality" on the 
part of slum occupants is the major con- 
tributing factor to substandard housing. 
When the Mayor says that "some people 
want to live only in squalor," he fails to 
understand that poverty is a state of 
mind, an approach to life ingrained after 
years of discrimination in education, job 

opportunity, and a hundred other 
This "lack of responsibility" can hardly 
be blamed on slum occupants. It is, rather, 
the fault of the "well meaning," white 
Christians of the Chestertown 
ity, who, for many years, on their way 
to church, have carefully avoided passing 
through the town' 

Mayor Haacke informs us that once the 
Comprehensive Plan for land usage is 
completed, Chestertown will see "day- 
light" with regard to the housing prob- 
lem. However, the Mayor failed to dis- 
cuss how "irresponsibility" will suddenly 
disappear after the Comprehensive Plan 
is issued. 

If Chestertown's war on poverty is to 
be won, the poor must be converted from 
people to whom and for whom things will 
be done into people who have dignity and 
who will strive to do things for them- 
selves.. This is where the Che 

plan fails. 

A house-to-house, block-to-block effort 
is needed to instill a new sense of dignity 
into these downtrodden people. Mayor 
Haacke's attempt to enlist townspeople 
in such a project has, until now, been a 
total failure. The students of Washington 
College must now show their concern and 
undertake the project of developing com- 
munity pride and making the substandard 
houses livable. We must try to repair the 
physical and cultural damage caused by 
the years of neglect.

Wrestling is the only sport at this college that matches 
competitors who are as close to physical equals as possible. 
The weight restrictions guarantee that your opponent will not 
weigh more than your weight class permits. Skill therefore is 
not a prerequisite. The team needs student candidates to form

The opposition for the sopho-

squad. As season records go, the 
junior class had a rather unique 
history. They had defeated the 
sophomores once, had lost by a

coming up this month. The pro-

graduates, including masters and 
doctorate degree candidates, who 
live in the Baltimore area the op-

tives from nearly one hundred lo- 
cal companies about the very im-

old hometown.

Following a tradition initiated 
last year, the College's Women

Peace Corps after graduation lasl 
June and is teaching in Lobo, Ba-

Last year the Women's Resi-

recognition by its "Cheer John" 
project. This program was organ- 
ized on campus to send Christinas 
packages to American servicemen 
in Vietnam.

which will be used for the postage

want to work on the Christmas 
project or who would like more in- 
formation on the program to con-

welcome any effort by college 
groups to undertake the project. 

Furthermore, the Mayor com-

county, state, or national — should 
avoid involvement, as far as pos- 
sible, with the housing problem.

"Governments and individuals

With the final deadline for sub-

Olear commented on the general 
lack of response by the student 
body to submit articles from their 
particular fields of study. 

She explained that there was an 
overwhelming response in the field 
of creative writing, but little from 
students in the math and science 
departments. "Several students, at 
the request of the editorial staff, 
are currently writing articles speci- 
fically for the magazine," she i

A verba! battle is being waged be-

Some professors feel that too 
much is spent on less important 
features of the college, like expan- 
sion of the college, and thus the 
library suffers. The result is "quan- 
tity" rather than "quality." 
Spends 6.7% On Library 

Mr. Bailey counters this criti- 
cism, saying that Washington Col- 
lege spends a greater percentage 
of the total college educational 
funds for the library than most 
colleges our size, including Hood, 
Western Maryland, and Gouchcr, 
and that this percentage (6.7) is 
above the minimum accepted lor 
accrcdation in Maryland (which is 
5 percent). 

Dr. Howard Grumpclt, Assistant 
Professor of Psychology retorts that, 
"I hope we don't have to compare 
ourselves with the other small col- 
leges in Maryland." Colleges such 
as Amherst and Williams spend a 
lesser percentage of their funds on 
their libraries. Although this per-

tribute to the spirit of Christmas at Washington Col- 

Yet the Christmas spirit at Washington College has 
a more special meaning — a time for concern with hu- 
manity. The Women's Residence Association again 
sponsored a Christmas project. This year, the coeds 
sent Yuletide packages to the Philippines for distri- 
bution to rural schoolchildren. The Kappa Alpha 
Order adopted nineteen orphans last Saturday after- 
noon for a party and dinner. 

Let us all resolve that throughout 1967, instead of 
for just a few days, this spirit of concern will prevail.

her life between then and now has

his home life, and Chiang Ching

functions in Communist China in 
the past. Now, she has suddenly

him to be a farmer. Mao was close

did not love his first wife and the 
couple were unhappy. They were

Mao Loses Three Children 
Shortly after the death of his 
second wife, Mao met a 20-year- 
old leftist coed named Ho Tzc- 
cheng at Changs ha College. They 
wero married in 1930 and Mao's 
third wife adored him immensely. 
Reliable sources agree that she 
bore Mao five children. She ac- 
companied her husband on the 
legendary "Long March" in 1934- 
35 from South China to the cave 
city at Yenan in North-east China, 
One Nationalist bombing raid 
during the march left her with 20 
shrapnel splinters in her body. 
Therefore, she was compelled to 
leave three of her small children

weed) in Shanghai in the 1930's 
(According to Stanley Kamow ol 
The Washington Post, her meas 

lieved to be 32-24-34.) She was 
a minor or second-rate movie ac- 
tress, whose most successful and

his fourth, was bom in Tsinan, 
Shangtung Province, of middle- 
class parents. Her original name 
killed in was Li Ching-yun. She was a gl am- 
is movie actress under the 

Chinese Communist revolution. 
Chiang Ching was not particularly 
intelligent, but was active in leftist 
intellectual and art circles in 
Shanghai. She had formerly mar- 
ried a leftist newspaper editor nam- 
ed Huang Ching. After the Sino- 
Japancse War started and the sub- 
sequent occupation by Japanese 
troops in Shanghai in 1938, she 
decided to abandon her unsuccess- 
ful acting career and join the Yen- 
an theatrical movement to enter- 
tain Chinese Communist guerrillas. 
Mao Tse-tung soon became her 
most ardent fan in Yenan (Chinese 
Communist wartime headquarters). 
She divorced her first husband a 
year before marrying Mao in 1939. 
Chiang Ching is believed to have 
given Mao two daughters. 

Lin Piao — Mrs. Mao Pact 
Needless to say, Chiang Ching's 
sudden emergence from previous 
total obscurity is a political fact 
of profound significance. Signifi- 
cantly, her emergence as a leading 
political personage has been pre- 
ceded by the ascendancy to the 
pinnacles of power of Defense Min- 
ister Lin Piao. There is good rea- 
son to suspect that Mrs. Mao Tse- 
tung may have made a secret pact 
with Marshall Lin Piao to perpet- 
uate the Maoist brand of commu- 
nism in China after her husband 
passes away. This pact is further 
j'oincd by Chen Po-ta, Mao's most 
trusted personal 
Chu, Lin's close 
Kang Shen, a former s 
man and one of the major spokes- 
men for Maoism in the Sino-Soviet 
conflict. After Chairman Mao's 
death, his widow will undoubtedly 
become a considerable political as- 
set and serve as a useful symbol 
for Defense Minister Lin Piao in 
his drive to consolidate power in

covering die Atlanta Falcons and the Boston Bruins. 

For this premiere article, I think a mere introduction of 
some of the newer players would be appropriate, With five out 
of the six opening games on the road, many Sho'men followers 
have little idea about our newly-recruited superstars, several 
of whom have crashed the starting line-up. Witli the injury to 
Mike Henehan and the regretable forced retirement of Dave 
Moreland, these fabulous freshmen now compose 40% of the 
team. So, ladies and gentlemen, the introduction of the 1966-67 
Washington College basketball freshmen, will begin. 

At one corner is Frank Marion, 6T' hot-shooting player 
from Rockvillc, Maryland. Frank led his team, a perennial 
Prince George's County power, to the highest scholastic champ- 
ionship in the State of Maryland. Marion will ably fill the gap

laud high school in several years. 

Starting opposite Marty Smith at guard will be 5'8" Dave 
Bruce from Cumberland, Maryland's Allegany High School. 
Dave played on this team, a constant Western Maryland power, 
as the Campers won two state championships in three years. 

Another possible starter could be Larry Martin, from 
Duval! High School in Lanham. Maryland. Larry led his south- 
ern Maryland learn to a near win in championships at College 
Park last' year.

Library Looks Ahead 

To Future Expansion 

(Continued from Page I) 
and appropriations are increasing 
every year. For instance, the col- 
lege appropriation for books is $12,- 
000, and this figure is steadliy 
growing; it is four times the sum 

flower arranging and colluding si.i 
shells, and that more interest 
should be taken in faculty and 
students. Mr. Bailey i 


have been special grants such as 
the $10,000 supplementary gift 
from the Kellogg Foundation grant 
(which is divided among all de- 
partments) and the proceeds from 
the annual Parents Association 
Drive. The total spent for books 
during the 1965-1966 academic 
year was $18,805. Mr. Bailey said, 
"This year there was an appreci- 
able increase in the library book 
funds in ail departments." 

Electronic Dialing System 
Dr. Grumpelt says he is "very 
concerned that there will be 
enough funds in the future for 
communications systems between 
other libraties in which a student 
might have access to journals in 
other libraries through an electron- 
ic dialing system. While this would 
be quite expensive, it could mean 
• 'insiderablc saving in the long 

In response, Mr. Bailey pointed 
out that our new library has made 
provisions for such advances. In 
the future, through new Federal 
grants, college li- 

saying that "there are two func- 
tions of the library: the support 
of the curriculum (references) and 
general interest {fiction, current 
biographies, current affairs)." 

One professor asked if too much 
was being spent on the libraiy staff 
and not enough on books? Could-

another by a teletype system so 
that students could ask for books 
from other libraries and these 
books would be sent to them with- 
in a few days. 

Cost Of Journals Cited 

Many students who are asked to 
do original research papers (es- 
pecially in the sciences) find that 
they have to go to Baltimore or 
Washington libraries f^r up-to- 
date journals. Mr. Bailey remarked 
that "we are adding as many jour- 
nals as we ■ can; this year we have 
thirty-seven new journals. When 
you add journals you should also 
add a backfile. The journals and 
backfiles can be extremely expen- 
sive. One periodical costs $48(1 a 

What about the quality of the 
books? The faculty and the librar- 
ian choose the books for the li- 
brary. Mr. Bailey said, "The funds 
are slotted aumng the depart

of funds with which it has dealt.

78,000 Volumes 
Since 1957, the library accumu- 
lated one third of its present col- 
lection of over 78,000 books. Every 
year brings an increase of about 
3,000 books, and this number is 
growing. He also says that since 
the four-course plan was initiated 
and the expansion of fields of 
music and art, the library has been 
growing along with the curricu- 
lum. He says that "We are exper- 
iencing growing pains which are

The charges w

pense of the Women's Residence 

i meeting of women's 
proctors and the sub-council of the Women's Resi- 
dence Association. The meeting was called by Dean 
of Women Mary J. Caton after considerable con- 
troversy over this issue erupted at a meeting of the 
Student Government Association. 
Charges Restated 
The initial accusations were made December 12 by 
Senator Steven Amick.. •Amick was colled to Mon- 

t of the charges made 

before the SGA and to answer questions from the 
women's representatives and the Dean of Women. 

Besides listing specific grievances, such as proctors 
in one freshman dormitory not being permitted 
upper-class hours, or compulsory door decorations 
during Christmas, Steve told the group: 

"The problem is really one of attitude rather than 
of individual and trivial incidents." 
Not In Constitution 

He continued by stating that some housemothers 
"conceive their jobs as-bcinl* primarily disciplinary in 
nature. However, in neither the published College 
rules, nor in the WRA Constitution, -are any discipli- 
nary duties allotted to housemothers." 

The WRA is given full responsibility for making 

nxi enfon 

Heated Dis 

A heated discussion followed Steve's presentation 
and subsequent departure, according to informed 
sources. Additional complaints lodged against some 
housemothers included: 1) punishment too excessive 
for the crime committed; 2) kitchens being locked 
.it night; 3) residents of Caroline House not being 
permitted use of Queen Anne's House television, aJ- 
lli<m<,']i the Caroline television did not work. 

The meeting was adjourned with a resolution to 
earn- on further discussion of these problems, with 
the intention of submitting a series of written sugges- 
tions to the Student A Hairs Committee.

Role Questioned 

We sometimes became lulled by the status quo. 
We tend not to notice or to think about events, or the 
direction they are taking, until we are prodded to 
think about them. 

Such a prodding took place at the December 12 
meeting of the Student Government Association. Sena- 
tor Steve Amick accused housemothers of having "the 
wrong attitude" and of assuming too much discipli- 
nary responsibility. 

A meeting of women's proctors and a sub-com- 
mittee of the Women's Residence Association, called 
by Dean of Women Mary J. Caton, to discuss the issue, 
resolved to carry on further discussion of these prob-

Myers From 
Center Court 

By G. Myers 

Since the topic I had originally planned to write about was 
not greeted with intense enthusiasm by this newspaper's sports 
staff, I have been forced to exchange my basketball togs for the 
robes of a fortune teller. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, and Wash- 
ington College sports fans everywhere, Gary Myers, the great 
soothsayer who sees and knows all, is now going to predict scores 
for the remainder of the Sho-mcn biiskfihall svason. However, 
it is only fair to warn the now very much enthusiastic reader 
that these predictions are strictly off the top of my head at 3 
o'clock on a Monday morning and with a great amount of optis- 
ism intertwined. Yet, I must say that this spirit o. r approaching 
success is partially justified by Saturday's victory over a suppos- 
edly strong Johns Hopkins team. After this upset I am predict- 
ing that the Sho'men will finish the last ten games of the season 
with an 8 and 2 record. One must remember, too, that even 
though I am giving numerical scores the main point of this hoop 
conjecture is merely to pick the victors. Fanally, I am giving you, 
the fan, wherever you are hiding, a chance to view the validity 
of my predictions. By the time this paper reaches you, the Dick- 
inson game will be history and you can easily compare my 
prophecy with the actual facts. But enough expte 
with the main business of this article.

Burns Named New Dean 

Governing Board Creates 
Vice Presidential Posts 

The Board of Visitors and Gov-

recently announced the appoint- 
ment of Dr. Landon C, Bums, Jr. 
as the new Dean of the College. 

Presently assistant professor of 
English at the University of Penn-

was named to the position on Jan- 
uary 21 and takes office here on 
July 1. 

Administrative Experience 

Dean Burns received his B.A. in 
1951 from Yale University. He 
served as a lieutenant in the Unit- 
ed State Navy from 1951 to 1954, 
and then returned to Yale, earning

Rep. Morton Urges 
Changes In Policy 

Congressman Rogers C. B. Mor-

Federal spending from military to 
domestic programs. Morton spoke

ence last Thursday afternoon. 

Morton's theme was improve-

mented that "if we don't redea! 
the cards so that environmental 
spending gets a much higher share, 
we're going to be in deep trouble." 

11 Percent of Federal Budget 

The Eastern Shore Representa- 
tive told his audience Uiat only a 
small slice of the Federal budget 
dollar was allocated for improving 
the environment. Morton said that 
defense took 40 percent, Vietnam 
16 percent, fixed costs (debt, vet- 
erans) 33 per cent, and all other 
constructive Federal programs 11 

"I don't believe that you can 
fight crime on dirty streets; I don't 
feel that you can fight a negative 
situation in housing with a Band- 
aid type of program in our great 
cities," he remarked.

Morton stated that waste in the 
defense department could be elim-

the minimum wage. 

After questioned on his voting 
behavior, Morton said that he was 
against the Administration's pro- 
grams because they lacked ade- 
quate safeguards. He stated that 
he was not against the programs, 
per se. 

When asked about his opposition 
to Washington, D.C. home-rule, 
Morton replied that "the nation's 
capital belongs to all its citizens," 
He said that Washington should 
become a "demonstration city." 

He replaces Dr. Robert Kirk- 
wood, who resigned his post last 
summer to become associati- execu- 
tive secretary for the Committee on 
Institutions of Higher Education, 
the Middle States Association of 
Colleges and Secondary Schools.

Lift Depressing 

Astonishment and disbelief describe the Elm's 
"Fine Arts' Folly"— a $40,000 hydraulic lift to be installed in 
ihe Fine Arts Center. Although the new lift only rises about 
ten feet (that means it cost $4,000 a foot), it must be regarded 
.is the height of frivolity, if nothing else. 

The lift, to be used for theatrical effects and for an orches- 
tra .ii (we do not know where Ihe orchestra is, either), comes 
at a lime when Washington College is desperately searching 
tor money to beef up its library, faculty salaries, and scholarship 



teaches us that, before expendi- 

made, priorities must be determined. What can be 

with $111,000, other than buying a hydraulic platform? 


For one, the College library could buy 600 
hooks. Or, eacli member of tne faculty could be given a bonus 
of nearly $1000. Or, the College could have been well on its 
way to endowing a faculty chair. Or, forty students could have 
been given $1000 scholarships. Or. we could have endowed 
s scholarships. Etc.. Etc., Etc. 

If tile College really does feel the urge to throw away $40,- 
000 as purchase of the lift seems to indicate, it could have, at 
least, thrown the money back at the students — $66 a head. 

File lift is ili'liiiih'lv depressing.

New Drug Policy 

The College Administration has recently instituted a rule 
on narcotics that will make it illegal for any student to possess, 
use, sell, or to be in control of "narcotic, psychedelic, or dan- 
gerous drugs." 

Further, the College will "remain cognizant of its responsi- 
bility to the legal authorities in these matters." 

The language of the new rule is crystal clear. It leaves 
room for erroneous interpretation by the student body. 

The Elm believes that the College is making ;

Myers From 
Center Court 

Since it is Sunday night again and again I have forgotten 
my deadline, this week's article will merely be a roundup of 
several news items concerning the Sho'n.en basketball team 
which may not have reached the eyes of our numerous fans. 
So, here they are: 

1. It was announced last night by the Los Angeles Lakers that 
the Sho'men have made a trade with the Lakers. . . . Los 
Angeles will send Elgin Baylor, Jerry West, and another un- 
named player to Ghestertown in return for Marty Smith. . . . 
However, Smith has announced his intention to retire instead 
of playing outside of Russell I'icklhouse. The NCAA will rule 
on the trade next week. 

2. In the off-season George Buckless acts as sales representa- 
tive for the Charley Atlas Bodybuilding Method. ... So far 
George has earned more than $3,000. ... He poses for the 
"before" photos in the ads. 

3. Frank Marion was recently named by President Johnson 
as American Attache to the State of Nicaquarca, specializing 
in soul sounds and bougaloo. The nomination came after his 
exhibition of savoir-faire at a recent embassy ball. . . . Simul- 
taneously he was awarded "Rookie of the Year" for not know- 
ing what savoir-faire means. 

4. Ron Regan was named to the All-Arnericar 
Eat Too Much for a Living" team. 

5. Dave Bruce has announced his engagement 
old girl. . . . His only comment was that he wa: 
the footsteps of his idol Jerry Lee Lewis. 

6. Larry Sterling has just resigned his job as understudy for 
James's Brown's Flames. ... He will now sing lead for the 
British Quarter. 

7. In a recent vote by Sho'men players, Steve Clagett was 
named "Person That You Most Like To Pass To Because You 
Are Assured of A Return Pass." 

8. Tom Provinale was recently given Sport Magazine's Cor- 
vette as Athlete of the Year." . . . This makes an even dozen 
in the family. 

9. After a recent Washington College Game, Hugh Hefner has 
announced that the Washington College Cheerleaders will all 
serve as center foldouls in forthcoming Playboy Magazine. 

10. And finally True Confessions Magazine has voted unani- 
mously to give Coach Ed Elliot the Match Maker of the 
Year Award.

plans for a Men's Intramural

will be based on nominations of 
the players. 

In addition to a five-man 
team from each league, a most- 
valuable player will represent 
each league. The MVP honors 
will be decided by balloting of

Last week ihe Men's Residence Association was presented 
with a request for funds to purchase an outdoor basketball 
backboard. The basket is to be constructed on the Somerset 
parking lot. However, the proposal was tabled, pending an 
inquiry of student interest. We feel that such a purchase 
would be in the best interest of the men. 

The MRA questioned the need for an outdoor basket, 
feeling a possible lack of student support. This fall the men's 
gymnasium was opened evenings for student use. Participation 
warranted continuous use throughout the winter, with as many 
as fifty men using the gym nightly. The basketball intramural 
program has a weekly participation of about one hundred 
twenty men, while twenty play varsity and j.v. ball, Coach 
Athey feels that if "twenty or twenty-five men use the basket 
regularly," its purchase will be warranted. There seems to 
be little doubt concerning student interest. 

At this time the athletic association cannot afford the full 
purchase price. As the basket would be used primarily by the 

the MRA rather than the S.G.A. should be the support

Rebutting Kazin, Kroll defended 
the validity of recent experiments 
in the visual arts. During the last 
decade, Kroll said, the artist has 
been trying to occupy the gap be- 
tween art and life, to make the 
pattern of human behavior into the 
aesthetic search itself. The experi- 
ments of Warhol and others can 
thus be seen as attempts to erase 
distinctions between art and ex-

College Formulates Policy 
On Campus Drug Question 

By Thomas Lacher 
Dean of Men Carl Westerdahl 
announced on January 26 the Col- 
lege's official policy on narcotics 
at a special student meeting in 
William Smith Auditorium. 

The addition to the College 
Handbook will read: "Any Wash- 
ington College student found in 
the possession of, using, selling, or 
in control of narcotic, psychedelic, 
or dangerous drugs will subject 
himself to immediate dismissal from 
the college. In addition the col- 
lege will remain cogni?ant of its 
responsibility to the legal authori- 

Dean Westerdahl stated iliat the 
"growing number of narcotics vio- 
lations in campuses across the coun- 
try precipitated the new rule." 

He emphasized that the College 
favors open discussion on the nar- 
cotics issue and that it welcomes 
open forums between students and

Begin Spring 

Preparation for the opening of 
the lacrosse season on March 18 
began in earnest this week as some 
thirty-odd candidates took the field 
for formal practice. Informal prac- 
tice began January 30 with calis- 
thenics, running, conditioning and 
drills under the direction of assist- 
ant coach Bob Pritxlaff. 

Body contact was avoided the 
first week to prevent injuries, and 
full equipment was not issued until 
last Thursday. This picture will 
change now as the squad goes all- 
out in preparation for their first

administrative officers. The Dean 
of Men also remarked that the 
College's position is not final and 
static, but remains receptive to re- 
sponsible constructive change. 

The new narcotics rule was form- 
ulated after much investigation and 
inquiry into the problem. Dean 
Westerdahl stated that eight fac- 
ulty members, President Gibson, 
Dean Newlin, Dr. Groehler, ten to 
fifteen students, Preston Heck, the 

colleges were consulted. 

At the same meeting, Dean 
Westerdahl announced additional 

parking regulations for second se- 
mester. Freshmen with grades of 
"all C's or better" will be allowed 
to have cars. Twenty-four out of 
a possible 176 freshmen qualify for 
the new automobile regulation. The 
new parking rules include: 

1. No automobiles belonging |.> 
any male students may be parked 
in any college parking facility east 
of Washington Avenue. 


5. Students are reminded that 
all parking on Campus Lane is 
illegal. If this rule continues to be 
abused the college will be forced 
to close the lane to traffic. 

The coffee machine in Somerset 
was removed "for unclear reasons" 
according to Dean Westerdahl, but 
he added "the machine probably 
wasn't making enough money to 
justify its existence." 

The meeting closed on an opti- 
mistic note when the Dean said 
that he was encouraged by the 
over-all behavior of the male stu- 
dents and that the past semester 
was the most ltarmonious one in 
recent years in the area of student

Library Acquires Copier; 
Aid Deadline Approaches 

A Vico-Maiic copier has been 
placed in ihe reading room of 
Bunting Library on a trial basis. 
Similar to those found in many 
libraries, the machine, when set in 
operation by insertion of a dime, 
makes clear white- on-black copies 
of documents, letters, pages of 
books and periodicals, etc. 

If a black-on- while copy is de- 
sired, another dime may be de- 
posited to obtain a "ropy of the 
copy." The machine is availahlr 
whenever the reading room is open. 
It is hoped tliat the use of this ser- 
vice will be sufficient to warrant 
its permanency. 

Students who wish lo be con- 
sidered for financial assistance for 
the 1967-68 academic year must

SGA Readying Course Evaluations 

Student evaluation of professors and their 
courses, a principle issue in last year's "White Paper," 
may soon become reality, according to Cliff Hankey. 
president of the Student Government Association. 

"The purpose of the evaluation," he explained, 
"is to help both students and professors. Instead of 
relying on campus gossip, students will have a com- 
plete reference of other students' opinions on pro- 
fessors and their courses. 

Stimulate Discussion 

"But even more important," he continued, "we 
hope that the criticism, and praise, of students will 
stimulate self-evaluation and discussion among facul- 
ty members on the best teaching methods for their 

consisting of Senate's Executive 

Committee members and several interested students 
will decide the form of the evaluation and the areas 
the question will cover. After a tentative question- 
naire is set up, the committee will enlist professional 
assistance in framing the questions and tabulating 
the results. The purpose is to give as accurate picture 
as possible of student opinion. 

Opposition to Publication 
Cliff explained that several people fear that, 
because the evaluations could be unfair, and per- 
haps damaging, to professors, they should not be 
published. Instead, critics feel they should be used 
only by the faculty for self-evaluation. "After talk- 
ing to faculty members, students, and administra- 
tors," he stated, "we decided that the evaluations 
are as important lo students as to professors, and so 

should be published for general use. 

"The problems of biased students and unfair 
evaluations can be eliminated to a great extent by the 
way in which the questions are asked," lie contin- 
ued. He emphasized that no value judgments will 
be drawn from the evaluations. 

Numerical Rating 

The interpretation of the results will be left to 
I he individual. Basically, it will be a tabulation of a 
numerical rating which will reflect student opinion 
about the professor and the course. 

The Senate will hold an explanatory assembly 
when the evaluation questionnaire is finished. After 
students have had an opportunity to discuss the 
program with their representative. Senate will vote 
on the proposal.

Recently the Student Government Association has 
taken action in two important areas— judiciary system 
reform and course evaluation. Both proposals should 
benefit the students of Washington College. The judi- 
ciary reform, in the words of SGA Vice-President Dick 
Jackson, would "clarify and streamline" the existing 
Judiciary Board, while course evaluations would en- 
able the student to objectively evaluate each course 
he takes, instead of relying on rumor and gossip. 

A great deal of confusion exists today in the Col- 
lege's judiciary system. "Due process" of an accused 
student is not always followed, as was shown in last 
spring's infamous off-campus case. As a result, injus- 
tices have occured, not necessarily because of admin- 
istration malintent, but because of a faulty judiciary 
structure. A new structure, composed of five students, 
four teachers, and the non-voting Dean of the College 
and Vice-President of the SGA should modernize the 
Judiciary Board, and at the same time take the pressure 
off the administration for unpopular decisions since 
under the proposal students and faculty would make 
up the "jury." 

Course evaluations will allow the student body to 
express their opinions on courses and professors. As' a 
consequence of the evaluations, professors may be 
forced to reassess their teaching methods, the end result 
being improved quality of instruction at Washington 
College. The Elm cautions the SGA that the evalua- 
tion forms should be constructive in nature and should 
not intend to demoralize any professor. Since this pro- 
posal is still in the early stages, there is time to make 
certain that the evaluations are as constructive and 
meaningful as possible. The Elm supports both SGA 
actions and believes both will be substantial improve- 
ments to the College. T.G.L. 

Lecture Series 

A recent gathering of Washington College stu- 
dent leaders was asked to pinpoint the most intellectu- 
ally stimulating aspect of extracurricular campus life. 
All agreed that it is the lecture series. 

Certainly, most of the notable lectures this semes- 
ter have been in the Louttit-Gcorge Lecture Series. 
This series was established by Mrs. Harry Clark Bodcn 
IV in memory of James Lout tit; Jr., Sidney George 
Jr. and Joshua George III. of Mt .Harmon Plantation, 
Cecil County, Maryland, who, in 1782, contributed to 
the original endowment funds of Washington College. 
Included in this lecture series have been the Rev. Mal- 
colm Boyd, John Dos Passos, Carl Bode, and Daniel 
Callahan, Associate Editor of Commonweal, who will 
speak on Tuesday, April 11. 

The students of Washington College are greatly 
indebted to Mrs. Bodcn, who has contributed so much 
to the intellectual life of Washington College.

The second half was as closely 
contested as the first, but the Sho*- 
men couldn't overtake Swarthmore 
and lost, 77-69. High scorer for 
Washington College was Frank 
Marion with 21 points. 

Last Thursday night Washington 
College hosted Lebanon Valley. 
Displaying a balanced scoring at- 
tack blended with fine teamwork, 
the Sho'men came out of the con- 
test with a 77-68 victory. 

The game was a see-saw affair 
until the final minutes of the first 
half when the Sho'men took the 
lead which they never relinquished. 
With the score tied, Larry Sterling 
and Dave Martin scored successive 
baskets to give the team a 39-35 
lead at the half. 

Continuing to display a balanced 
attack, the Sho'men increased their 
lead in the second half and rode 
home to victory. For Washington 
College, five players scored in 
double figures. They were Marion, 
Tom Polvinale, Marty Smith, 
Sterling, and Martin. Polvinale 
was the high scorer with 20. 

Coach Elliott was especially 
pleased by the lift that sophomore 
Sterling gave to the team when he 
came off the bench to score 14 
points in the Sho'men victory. 

The final game of last week was 
played by a visiting Sho'men team 
against a powerful Hampden-Syd- 
ney quintet. The Hampden-Sydney 
team, one of the strongest on the 
Washington College schedule this 
year ran away from the Sho-men 
to win 123-91. In the victory 
Hampden-Sydney shot a phenom- 
enal 57 percent from the floor. 

For Washington College once 
again there were five players in 
double figures. The leading scorer 
for the Sho'men were Gary Myers 
and Smith with 16 points apiece. 

This Saturday the Loyola Col- 
lege Greyhounds visit Washington 
College. In an earlier meeting this 
year, the Sho'men were defeated

A-Intramural Action; 
B-Standings Tied 

A five-way tie for first place in 
the intramural B league is the re- 
sult of last week's play. The Raid- 
ers were defeated by the Dropouts 
while the Doo Birds, Phi Sigs and 
SIF each collected wins. All five 
now slate 5-1 records. 

In the A league the Lambdas 
and KA's kept up their winning 
ways, defeating the Thetas and Phi 
Sigs, respectively. Only the outside 
shooting of Mike Kelly and Harry 
Webb saved a 35-30 victory for the 
Lambda five, as the Thetas com- 
pletely dominated the backboards 
throughout the contest. 

Their 25 points combined were 
just enough to best the 2-1-2 Thcta 
zone defense which stifled John 
Roberts and Tim Bohaker under 
the boards. Dave Rosenstock and 
Carl Ortman contributed 1 1 and 9 
the Thcta 



The KA':

at halftime. The Sigs, sparked by 
Ken Stien's outside shooting in the 
first half, went cold in the second 
half. Cam Smith and Sonny Wun- 
derlich each hit for 12 tallies and 
the KA quintet won, 41-29. 

The Nizblats took revenge for 
l heir earlier defeat at the hands of 
the Dropouts, as Woody Snyder 
and Paul Fastie netted 21 points 
each. Joe Nichols bucketed 1 7

smothered the basket we a vers, 51- 

The Phi Sigs defeated the The- 
tas, 38-22, as Jack Hawkes hit for 
15 points. Making the five-way 
deadlock possible, was the 50-19 
rout of the Raiders, previously un- 
defeated, by the Dropouts, as Bob 
Bittenbender hit for 14 counters 
with Bill Goff scoring 12. Charlie

Sports Editorial 

Schedule Defended 

In an editorial on November 30, 1966, the Chester River 
Press called for a reassessment of Washington College's basket- 
ball schedule. The Press pointed out that Washington College 
has won only nine out of thirty-five encounters in the past two 
seasons. Twenty-one of those thirty-five encounters were against 
Mason Dixon foes, with Washington College winning only four 
of these contests. With these figures in mind the Press went on 
to advocate that Washington College drop such Mason-Dixon 
foes as Mt. St. Mary's, Catholic U., Randolph-Macon, and 

Well, things aren't quite as simple as the Press seems to 
indicate. First of all, Washington College plays these Mason- 
Dixon teams in all sports, not just basketball. If we drop Mt. 
St. Mary's in basketball, what's to prevent Mt. St. Mary's from 
dropping us in soccer. Soccer is a sport in which the two teams 
compete on a fairly even basis. 

Secondly, most of the teams that we compete with in the 
Baltimore area are in the Mason-Dixon Conference. These 
include Towson, Mt. St. Mary's, Loyola, and Catholic U. If 
we drop these teams from our schedule, we would lose much of 
our newspaper sports coverage in the Baltimore area. At present, 
this is a valuable part of Washington College's public relations 

Third, the Washington College athletic department, like 
any other athletic department, competes in a sport with the 
idea of winning the league championship. 

To qualify for either the Mason-Dixon or the Middle 
Atlantic championships, Washington College must play six to 
eight different opponents in each league. If we try to schedule 
the easiest teams in both leagues in a particular sport such as 
basketball, the team would not qualify for either championship, 
in addition to endangering our status with certain teams in 
other sports. 

While we are on the subject of basketball, one hopeful note 
should be injected into the discussion. This year's basketball 
team has only one senior and no juniors on the squad. Also, there 
are two transfer students who are expected to be a big help to 
the team next year. With this kind of depth returning, Washing- 
ton College could be ready to knock off some of those teams 
which consistently "outclass" us.

NSA Issue Re-opens 

By Mark A. Schulman 

Despite the U.S. National Student Association's con- 
firmation, last Tuesday, of clandestine financial ties with 
the Central Intelligence Agency, the Student Government 
Association will probably maintain its affiliation with NSA. 

This was indicated by an informal Elm survey Tues- 
day, of SGA Senators. The NSA topic was not discussed 
at length during Monday's SGA meeting. 
Issue To Re-open 

However, the survey also indicated that some long- 
time opponents of SGA membership in NSA are planning 
to use the NSA-CIA disclosure to re-open the member- 
ship issue, last debated two years ago. 

SGA President Cliff Hankey, a cautious supporter 
of NSA affiliation, commented that, "while the current

Besides granting to the College 
die use of his name, George Wash- 
ington served as a member of the 
Board of Visitors and Governors 
from the school's inception in 1782 
until he became President of the 
United States in 1789. He also con- 
tributed 500 guineas to the original 
endowment funds of the institution.

affair is abominable, we have never had any complaints 
against the services offered by the Association." 
NSA Consulted 

"NSA has been useful on a number of occasions," 
he continued. Hankey noted that the student organiza- 
tion was consulted in connection with SGA studies of 
campus social problems, judiciary change, student travel 
abroad, and student discount cards. 

"It also serves as a clearinghouse which channels in- 
formation to and from various schools," he said. 
Hankey For Continuing 

Hankey said he would be in favor of continuing 
SGA's affiliation with NSA "unless it can be proven that 
the CIA substantially influenced the policies of the organ- 
ization or that more than a few top NSA leaders were 
aware of CIA infiltration." 

Meanwhile, SGA Senators David Cohn and Joseph 

Coale announced their intention to oppose renewal of NSA 

membership. Both were aligned with anti-NSA forces 

two years ago, when SGA last appraised its affiliation. 

Reflection of Student Opinion 

"I think the NSA is a Communist front," said Cohn, 
a former NSA coordinator for the SGA.

"This year," he explained, "the

Washington Traditions 

This week end's activities will pay homage to perhaps the 
greatest of our nation's founders, on the 236th anniversary of 
his birth. Although numerous towns, schools, streets, and the 
like are named after George Washington, this College is unique 
in its close personal connection with our first President. 

As Washington's Birthday approaches, we thought a few 
facts, both well-known and obscure, would lie of interest about 
the College's namesake. 

George Washington personally gave his name to the Col- 
lege, contributed toward its support, and served on the infant 
College's Board of Visitors and Governors. The oldest chartered 
college in Maryland and the tenth in the country, Washington 
College is the only college to have received its name by personal 

The first two monuments erected to the memory of Wash- 
ington are located in Maryland. In Boonsboro, near Hagers- 
town, a crude stone monument was constructed by the towns- 
people in only one day. The first officially dedicated statue to 
Washington was built in Baltimore and is situated at Mount 
Vernon Place. 

One little-known fact about our founder is a discrepancy 
about his actual birth date. Today we celebrate Washington's 
birthday on February 22. However, Washington was born on 
February 11, 1731. The confusion stems from the 
of the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar, which 
red in 1752. This resulted in a 282-day legal year in 1751 and 
consequently, Washington did not have a birthday at all that 
year {Julian calendar). Finally, young George turned 21 on 
Febraury 22, 1753, as eleven days were added to the new cal-

The Balcon Fencing Club, estab-

Ancient Sport 
Fencing started centuries ago as 
practice in swordsmanship for ac- 
tual combat. Today because of the 
development of lighter and more 
manageable weapons, fencing is 
considered one of the safest and 
finest sports for physical and men- 
Coordination, balance, agility 
and quick perception a3 well as 
a keen sense of timing and physi- 
cal endurance 


The equipment used in fencing 
consists of the foil and various 
protective garments for the fencer 
including a chest-protective device 
called a plastron and a helmet to 
protect the face. The foil itself 
weighs approximately fourteen 
ounces and has an approximate 
overall measurement of 42 inches. 

The blade is rectangular in cross- 
section and tapers to a theoretical 
point. The foil is strictly a thrust- 
ing weapon. The objective is to 
score touches or theoretical punc- 
ture-type wounds with the point of 
the blade. 


At present, there are fourteen 
men mastering the fundamentals of 
the sport under the direction of 
captains Steve Miller and Bill 
Clark. A sport with a ritual as 
complex as its rides, fencing cate- 
gorizes each team member by the 
extent of his ability. 

There are five basic ranks: Can-

Heritage Program Shy $4 Million 

The construction of a new men's dormitory, a new li- 
brary, and expanded athletic facilities will constitute the 
major projects in the third phase of Washington College's 
Heritage Program, Captain Frank W. Hynson, Assistant 
to the President, reports. 

First on the agenda for the building program is a men's 
dormitory, which will be located on the present site of 
Barnett and Smith Houses. The dormitory is scheduled 
fur occupancy by the fall of 1968. 

Expanded Athletic Facilities 

To expand the present athletic facilities, a new women's 
gymnasium, costing an estimated $500,000, will be built 
adjacent to Russell Gymnasium. A swimming pool, attached 
to both men's and women's Kyiiiiiasiums, is also planned 
in this project. 

When the women's gymnasium is completed, a new 
library, designed to house twice the number of books in 
Bunting Library, will then be built on the present site of 
Cain Gymnasium. The estimated cost of this Structure is 


.ill be 

"Since the Arts Center is the only one of its type in 
the area, it will be an important element in enriching the 
academic program," Hynson commented. "Town-gown re- 
lations have been good, and improving, for many years, 
and we are also looking to the Arts Center to significantly 
further this valuable relationship." 

Additional Land Acquired 

In planning for future expansion of the College, ap- 
proximately li 1 acres contiguous to the existing campus 
have been purchased, hrinning the total area of the campus 
to more than 91) acres, A portion of this land has already 
been developed with new outdoor athletic facilities and 

"But the first order of importance in the Heritage 
Program is the students themselves," Hynson stated. The 
College has grown to a size of over COO, with an enrollment 

Since its initiation in 1962 by the Board of Visitors and 
Governors, the Heritage Program's original goal of 9.5 
million has been revised to the present goal of $12 million 
by 1970. Toward this figure, the College has raised in 
excess of $8 million to date.

$15,000, has been raised by a few alumni and friends of 
the College. With this fund, all other alumni are being

Drama Major 

The question of whether or not to establish a drama major 
will soon be decided by the faculty. On first hearing, one might 
be tempted to favor creation of such a major. After all, it 
would seem that the greater the diversity in courses offered, the 
iiiln>, air tin' opportunities for students. 

However, this may not be the case. With the excreation of 
a drama major, Washington College may be spreading itself 
too thin. Nine of our sixteen major departments this year have 
two or less full time faculty members. In an era of increasing 
specialization, many professors, because of our understaffed 
departments, find themselves over-burdened by constantly hav- 
ing to teach courses not directly related to their own specializ- 
ed interests. In some cases, important areas of study within 
existing departments are not even touched. 

For this reason, the Klin believes that, while it will be 
desirable to have a drama major in the future, we can ill afford 
to spread ourselves too thin now.

Potentially Good, Bad 

By Dick Heymann 

The dangers of using LSD unless 
under expert care and guidance 
were stressed last Sunday by Dr. 
Jean Houston, associate professor of 
Philosophy at Marymount College 
in Tarrytown, New Jersey. Dr. 
Houston co-authored the first com- 
prehensive study of the effects of 
LSD on human personality. The

Waiting For WRA 

In the beginning of January, SGA Senator Steven 
Amick accused housemothers of assuming too much 
disciplinary responsibility at the expense of the Wom- 
en's Residence Association. A general discussion of 
the situation resulted in a request that the WRA study 
the problem and issue a report defining the inter- 
related roles of proctor. Women's Residence Associa- 
tion, housemother, and student. 

The SGA and the Student Affairs Committee 
have been waiting two months for this report, and 
there is still not the slightest indication that the WRA 
is taking any action. 

Meanwhile, housemothers must continue their 
uniquely unpleasant task of police work, and dormi- 
tory government must continue to exist in a semi- 
anarchistic state. 

WRA inaction through the years is largely to 
blame for the current state of disorder. The associa- 
tion must now either disentangle and clarify the pow- 
er relationships or else acknowledge that it is reneg- 
ing. The issue must not be allowed to drag on infinite- 

Symptoms, Not Cause 

President Johnson called Monday for a reorgani- 
zation of the military draft system. There are some 
features of the present system that are in definite 
need of overhaul. However, one must wonder wheth- 
er the President is concerned more with the symptoms 
rather than the cause — overextension of American 
power — in at least two respects. 

First, many of the present draft inequalities are 
the result of economic and social environment. As 
long as America remains committed to its present 
course in world affairs, it will not be able to meet its 
obligation to its own people. We are presently aggra- 
vating the situation. 

Second, 300,000 American troops are still basking 
in tranquil Europe at a time of severe troop shortage. 

Even if there are short-run rewards to be derived 
from our present foreign policies, one must question 
whether they are commensurate with the sacrifice. 

Noted political commentator Eric Scvercid sug- 
gests that "America's reach may be longer than its 
grasp." This appears to be true.

Senator I. William Fulbright addresses 

Fulbright. It "tends also to take itself for 
omnipotence." In its attempt to "spread the 
gospel of democracy," he suggests, the U.S. 
stands in danger of Overcxtending itself. 
Central to America's messianic urge is "a 
national mythology cultivated in Fourth of 
July speeches and slick publications, which 
holds that we are a revolutionary society, 
that ours was the 'true' revolution which 
ought lo be an inspiration for every rcvo- I

Quite the contrary is true, Fulbright 
astutely observes. America is actually an 
"unrayolutidfiary society.!' It totally fails 
to show "empathy for' the great revolutions

The U.S. should forget about being

concentrate on backing nationalism. 

The Arkansas Senator also offers a hardy 
defense of the right to protest a war. In 
fact, he writes, "the protesters against the 
Vietnam war are in good historical com- 
pany." Abe Lincoln, in 1848, rose in the

1967 season with a record of six

l began with practice 
sessions starting in late October. 
Coach Ed "Lefty" Elliot had two 
starters, senior Marty Smith and 
sophomore Larry Sterling, return- 
ing. Coach Elliot had high expec- 
tations for success with freshmen 
Tom Polvinatc, Frank Marion, 
Larry Martin, and Dave Bruce and 
sophomore Car)' Myers. 

Coach Elliott Pleased 

Opening December first against 
Western Maryland, the Sho'mcn 
lost 107-84 with Smith and Pol- 
vinalc carrying the scoring load. 
Two more defeats followed in suc- 
cession against powerful Randolph 
Macon and always strong Loyola. 
Next against Delaware Valley, 
Washington registered its first vic- 
tory. Coach Elliot was extremely 
pleased with the offensive strength 
of the Sho'mcn in the 90-88 win. 

During the final week before 
Christmas vacation, the Sho'men 
were defeated by highly-rated 

Athey Netmen 
Begin Practice 

Tennis practice began this week 
for the Washington College netmen. 
as Coach Athcy held the season's 
first practice in preparation for the 
first match of the season, against 
Penn Military College on March 

This year's squad is by far, the 
largest to come out for Coach 
A they s tennis team. Competition 
will be keen, for the sixteen men 
on the squad will be vying for eight 
starting berths. Last year's entire 
starting team has returned again 
this season. Heading the list is 
Dick Checkctt, last year's No. 1 

Returning Veterans 
Other returning veterans are 
John Merrill, BUI Manning, Bob 
Kendall, Fred Gray, Steve Graeff, 
Dan Meascll, and Bill Wilson. 
Other prospects who might see ac- 
tion this year are Harold Wood- 
cock, Ken Stein and Joel Cope. 

The outlook for this year's team 
is very good, according to the 
Coach. The returning veterans 
combined with ont or two rookies 
should provide enough punch to 
improve last season's 4-6 record. 
With any luck at all, Washington 
College will have its first winning 

defeau J Towsc-n, 83-69. 

Civic Center Appearance 
After the break, Washington 
College faced Western Maryland 
and Johns Hopk.ns. In their sec 
«.nd annual appearance in die Bal- 
timore Civic Center, the Sho'mcn 
loai to Western Maryland, 91-83, 
despite fine efforts by Myers and 
Smith. The Hopkins game proved 

the Sho'men five over a highly 
touted Blue Jay team. 

Returning after exams, the Sho'- 
men defeated Dickinson 79-68, and 
lost to Wagner, 93-78, and Lycom- 
ing, 80-62, on the road. In the 
Dickinson clash, the sophomore- 
freshmen studded Sho'men came 
from behind to defeat the Hilltop- 
Defeat Lebanon Valley 

Finding the schedule becoming 
rougher, the Sho'men lost to 
Swarthmore, 77-69, and Hampden- 
Sydncy, 123-91, in away games. 
The Hampden-Sydncy team shot a 
torrid 57% from the floor in the 

77-68 and Gaflaudet 
both of these contests, the fresh- 
men starters for Washington Col- 
lege showed signs of maturing. 
Against Gallaudct, Captain Marty 
Smith scored 31 in the highest 
so .ring game of the season for a 
Sho'man performer. 

fn the final week of play the 
Sho'men were defeated by Loyola 
86-84 in overtime, Franklin and 
Marshall 75-57, and Mt. St. Mary's 

Thus, with a 6-14 record, the 
Sho'men can only look back upon 
the experience which they have 
gained to add to next year's future. 
Only one senior. Captain Marty 
Smith, is graduating. With a new 
crop of transfers and freshmen

This year, neither team will be

squads will be at about their av-

fielding an exceptionally strong 
team. Both teams look good on pa- 
per, but anything can happen when 
these two rivals meet on the field.

the Hopkins match. The Sho'men 
recently have been taking regular 
beatings from the Blue Jays, and 
only occasionally do the Kellymen 
field a team that threatens an up-

lacrosse people place Hopkins as 
number one in the nation. How 
well the Sho'mcn do against the 
Blue Jays will help determine how 
good the season will be.

Rules of Soccer Enforced 

The game is played in Russell 
Gym and this is truer than it 
might sound. The playing area is 
the total inside area of the gym ; 
everything is in bounds: walls, raft- 
ers, doors, basketball liai . kboards. 
etc. While Socrosse is rough, being 
played into walls and such, the 
rules of soccer are strictly enforced 
by player coach Athey. 

The game itself is played in 3

goalie, two defensemen, and three 
offensemen on the line. 
Five Point Shot 

Scoring is done by putting the 
ball, a volleyball for a soft touch 
and player safety, in either of the 
two basketball foul circles, this 
counts as one point. In the foul 
circle there is a basketball placed 
on an inverted paper cup. If this 
is knocked off by a shot, five points 
are tallied, a very difficult play.

exhausted teams, one the winner,

Spring Cleaning 

With the advent of the first gentle spring breezes on campus, 
many visible and natural transformations are ushered in. Spring 
is die season of rebirth, change, and rcvitalization, and it is in 
diis spirit of rejuvenation that the 1966-67 ELM Editorial Board 
passes on its responsibilities to die newly-elected staff. 

The outgoing staff wishes to drank everyone who contributed 
to the ELM's publication during the past year. The Board of 
Publications, especially its Chairman, Dr. Peter Tapke, and Mr. 
Charles Cockey served as invaluable sources of information, 
guidance, and inspiration for the paper. The Queen Anne's 
Publishing Company deserves special mention for their patient 
understanding of the sometimes apparent irrationality of the 
staff. Eleventh hour spasms of creativity were not uncommon 
this year and it is to our publisher's credit that a newspaper 
appeared at all on several occasions. Mr. A. Clayton McGarvey 
provided the ELM with transportation to reach the printing 
presses in Centreville, often on short notice. The ELM's pho- 
tography has improved immeasurably through the last four years 
and, to the graduating photographers, we extend our sincere 
appreciation for a job well done. Finally, our small dedicated 
core of reporters deserves the highest praise, for they represent 
the heart of any newspaper staff. They have shown willingness to 
search out news and to report it quickly to meet the ever present 
deadlines. — The Editorial Board

The Editor 

Many of the problems facing the 
ed and perhaps perpetuated by res- 
is especialy true concerning the wo- 
men of the campus and the rules 
that govern their lives. In partic- 
ular this is seen when the role of 
the house mother is questioned. 

A great many of the women on 
this campus arc resigned to the tra- 
ditional police-chape rone role of 
the dorm mother. They are resign- 
ed, .too, to the helplessness which 
they must exhibit in order to con- 
tinue comfortably this state of af- 
fairs, in order not to disrupt their 
daily routine. I feel that this is 
often due to a kind of fear — a 
fear of power on the one hand and 
i>f disturbance on the other. 
Unwritten Rules 

It is a well-accepted belief on 
this campus — ■ at least among die 
women — that to transgress one 
of the many unwritten rules is to 
invite the alienation and wrath of 
those who hold a great deal of 
power. In doing so, it is believed, 
harassment and discomfort within, 
and perhaps without, the confines 
of the dormitory will result. This 
belief has been proven sound in 

Perhaps it is telling that I have 
not written this until the second 

have been a chicken. Recently, 
however, I have attempted to ex- 
press my feelings and opinions. Ad- 
mittedly this has been done on a 
small scale. In doing so, I have 
met with no unbearable obstacles. 
I have, however, received no en- 
couragement, no colleagues in ac- 
tion. There has been agreement on 
the principles involved, however.

rather to expound upon its phil- 
osopy and motives. 

The Fellowship of Christian 
Athletes is a national organization 
founded in 1954 in which the Bal- 
timore Chapter has been active 
since in 1960. Its foundation was 
the result of efforts by Mr. Donald 
McClanen, Mr. Branch Rickey and 
Dr. Louis H. Evans, Sr., who felt 
there was a need to emphasize the 
coach's and athlete's responsibility 
as Christians in the world today. 
Mr, McClanen realized that the 
athlete holds a unique position in 
our society from which he could 
both set an example and spread 
Christianity in an age which is 
characterized l>v religious apathy. 
Confront Athletes' 

The primary purpose of the Fel- 
lowship of Christian Athletes as a 
national group is "to confront ath- 
letes and coaches, and through 
them the youth of the nation, with 
the challenge and adventure of 
following Christ in the fellowship 
of the Church . . In its fellowship 
of bringing together the greats and 
unsung heroes of the sports world, 
it works to help each other become 
better men and better examples of 
what God can do with a yielded 

We here at Washington College 
felt there was a definite need for 
such a group. We hope that the 
Fellowship can help us fill the void

There are two basic reasons fi 
the current FCA movement i 
Washington College: (1) that oi 
Fellowship will attempt to gi\ 
Christianity a firmer foundatic 
within t h c college communii 
through discussion, prayer, and 
deeper inner faith; and (2) to t 

itself. We no not propose to draw 
away from local churches and 
groups, but rather to further their

Publications Board Statements 

Next month the Student Government Association will recon- 
sider its membership in the National Student Association. In 
light of recent disclosures of clandestine financial ties between 
NSA and the Central Intelligence Agency, the membership issue 
promises to be hotly contested. However, for a number of rea- 
sons, the ELM believes that Washington College should main- 
tain its affiliation with NSA. 

First, if SGA has any complaints about "not getting its money's 
worth with NSA," it is, admittedly, SGA's fault. NSA has proved 
helpful on a number of occasions. It was consulted in conjunction 
with SGA studies <>1 c ampus ^» problems, course evaluations, 
judiciary change, student travel abroad, and student discount 
cards. SGA should take more advantage of the services offered 
by NSA. 

Second, students do need a national voice on policy issues. 
NSA has served this function in the past and can continue to do 
this in the future. There are some who cry that NSA is "too 
leftist" and hence unrepresentative of the majority of students. 
These critics are apt to overlook two factors: (1) college stud- 
ents, by tradition, are a leftist-oriented group; (2) those who 
complain about NSA positions usually never bother to attend 
NSA national conferences, where NSA policy is formulated and 
its leaders are elected. In recent history, Washington College has 
sent no representatives to the national gatherings. 

Third, NSA breaks down the isolation of campuses. It serves 
as a clearinghouse which channels information to and from 
various schools. 

The CIA affair was something more than unfortunate. How- 
ever, it would be even more unfortunate if NSA collapsed. This 
would prove to the CIA that it has life and death power over 
organizations it assists or has assisted. 

For these reasons the ELM believes that, if NSA can demon- 
strate that it has cleansed itself of the CIA, the SGA should 
renew its membership in this national organization. 

At its meeting on March 1 die Board of 
Publications authorized the publication of 
die statement printed below, requesting that 
it be published by the ELM in the last 
issue edited by the outgoing editorial staff. 
This somewhat unusual step was taken in 
view of what seemed the need to give recog- 
nition just now to the especially high edi- 
torial calibre of the ELM in the past year. 
Since 1963 the ELM has not fallen below 
Honors Second Class in the Associated Col- 
legiate Press ratings, and in 1965 was one 
of two papers in the nation to win All- 
American Honors in its class, the highest 
award possible. Yet the ACP ratings often 
arrive too late to honor the editors in ques- 
tion, and the Board wished to do what it 
could to commend this year's editors before 
their departure. 

There is only one gloomy side to the 
picture, and that is the large number of 
senior editors the ELM is losing this year, 
As one of the functions of the Board of 
Publications is to assure continuity in the 
editorial staff of the ELM, I should like to 
point out to any who may be interested the 
several slots in the upper ranks of the mast- 
head that are being vacated. All upper edi- 
torial positions carry stipends; to work in 
them can be both personally rewarding and 
a service to the life of Washington College. 
The Board urges all who may have been 
letting their talents as editors or writers go 
to waste to get in touch with editor-elect 

Dick Heyniann. This is an unusually good 
year to join the ELM staff. 

The Board of Publications is happy to 
make the following statement of commen- 
dation : 

'The Board of Publications, which seeks 
to raise and to maintain high standards in 
all the undergraduate publications of Wash- 
ington College, wishes to record its satis- 
faction in the excellent editorial work of 
the ELM editors for 1966-67, and in par- 
ticular of Editor-in-Chief Mark Schulman. 
"In the past year the standards of layout 
and typography achieved by past editors 
have been maintained and, in several places, 
improved. Feature writing has been gener- 
ally more imaginative and sophisticated. 
The sports page has looked livelier this year. 
By far the most outstanding improvement, 
however, has been the invigorated editorial 
policy of the ELM. The forceful editorial 
writing of the past year, while in the nature 
of things it cannot have pleased all die 
people all the time, has raised the joural- 
isttc excellence of the ELM to a new pitch 
and has contributed to the strength of 
Washington College as a forum for the free 
and uninhibited exchange of ideas. 

"In lauding the performance of the past 
year we commend the example it affords 
future editors of the ELM. Long may all 
these good trends continue and grow.'

MARCH 16,-1967 





This year the spring sports program at Washington College 
will again have a four-sport program featuring lacrosse, base- 
ball, track, and tennis. 

In previous years there has been an attempt to organize a 
golf team. Their efforts have proved to be futile because of a 
lack of interest and support among the student body. Cer- 
tainly the idea has been stated before. 

It doesn't seem possible that Washington College cannot 
produce enough players for this game which is among the most 
popular in the United States. Most of the schools that our 
teams regularly participate against in both the Middle Atlantic 
Conference and the Mason-Dixon Conference, have golf teams. 
In fact, there would in the State of Maryland alone be enough 
competition to guarantee a schedule for a golf team. Such 
schools as Johns Hopkins, Tow-son, Loyola, and Mount Saint 
Mary's, to name a few, have fine golf teams.

Last year the Sho'men were, represented by Tom Marshall 
and Page Carter in the Mason-Dixon Conference Champion- 
ships. Marshall, a three handicap player s was among the early 
leaders and finished a creditable eleventh representing Wash- 
ington College. Thus, the school received recognition in a 
sport that it doesn't field a team in. 

There are questions to be raised. One is the need of a 
course to practice and play matches on. This can be easily an- 
swered by the fact that there are facilities in the area. The 
Chestertown Yacht Club and Great Oak Country Club course 
in 1 hu»h possibilities. Another problem is that of finding a 
coach. However, there are members of the faculty who are 
able players and could be approached. 

The real question then is in the forming of such a team. 
Is there enough interest in Washington College for a team? 
Certainly with wrestling becoming a varsity sport, golf could 

lie seriously looked into.

squad is Alan Eisel. Last year 
led the Sho'men in almost ev

among the leading hitters in the 
nation with a .485 batting average. 
Pitching is the question mark 
at present. There are three return- 
ing letter-winners: Al Streelman, 
Sonny Wunderlich, and Dick Car- 
rington. These players will be sup- 
ported by freshman Tom Polvinale 
and sophomore Cam Smith. 

Pitching Weak 

Since none of these players have 
proven to be consistent winners, 
the prospects for a solid mound 
staff is the biggest weakness that 
Coach Elliot is seeking to remedy. 

The team will be especially 
strong at catching with Al Perry, 
starting catcher for the past two 
years and a consistent .300 hitter.

for a .300 average last year. He

The field events will be one of 
the strong points of this year's

year's lettcrmen have returned. At 
the shot, discus and javelin this 
year will be John McGinnis. John

for a fine crop of rookies. Sprinter

depth to the already powerful run-

Martin and Fred Couper. 

The possibility of bettering last 
year's record look dim according 
to Chatty. "We will score as many 
points in the running races but it 
will take more men to do it. The 
field events will be generally the 
same except in the broad jump and 
triple jump where the toss of 
Stramberg and Reddish will really 
be felt." Chatty is optimistic about 
the team's performance; he feels

By Dick Louck 

Spring comes to Washington College! Or so it seems, since 
all the signs are in evidence, even though it is still early March. 
Besides the balmy, sunny weather, certain phenomena around 
campus indicate strong doses of spring fever. 

To many students spring means a blanket and a girl to 
spend an afternoon with relaxing on the lawn in front of Bill 
Smith Hall. Others escape to Tolchester to catch the sunset, 
or the season's first beach party. 

Athletically minded students haul out the golf clubs to 
practice lobbing five-iron shots from Middle Hall to the roof of 
Dunning, while some prefer to borrow some buddy's lacrosse 
stick to "have a catch". 

Then there are the more carefree signs such as: Weejuns 
without socks; water balloons; Theta Chi Wall; top-down-tape- 
system-blaring-Impalas; bikes and chicks; outdoor classes; arid 
poor Mr. Goodfellow trying 
Motown sounds blasting from 

But according to an upcoming issue of Sports Illustrated, 

this campus centers around the institution of lacrosse.

Sho'men play host to Wesleyan University of Connecticut. 

This Saturday, the Sho'men travel to North Carolina for 
their first defense of the Strohbar Division title. Several prob- 
lems with personnel have been resolved by coach Don Kelly 
and the players have spent the last

Amateur Premiere 

Controversial MacBird 
Scheduled By Players 

MacBird this seasons most con- 
troversial play on Broadway, will 
lie presented at Washington Col- 
lege this spring. The announce- 
ment was made earlier this week 
l>y Timothy Maloney, Director of 
ihe new Fine Arts building and 
chairman of the drama depart- 
ment. MacBird will be staged in-

Mr. Maloney staled that Wash- 
ington College's production of 
MacBird will lie "among the first, 
if not the first production of the 
play as it is now being performed 

The play lias received mixed re- 
views, with some critics charging 
that it is "tasteless". The play 
closely parallels the events of the 
assassination of President Kennedy, 
and the controversy arises over the 
action of the other figures in the 
play, closely resembling other poli- 
tical figures, before and after the 

The play has developed from a 
fifteen minute skit that was plan- 
ned for the October 1965 Inter- 
national Days of Protest gather- 
ings. The skit never was written, 
as Miss Garson was embarked on 
a full length play. The first pre- 
sentation of MacBird was at the 
Village Gate theatre in New York 
on January 19. 1967. The style of 
the writing is a contemporary 
adaptation of Shakespeare langu- 
age, with the play itself originally 
intended to be a take-off on Mae- 

Different versions of the Play 
have appeared in manuscript, small 
printings, leaflets, and extensive 
excerpts in Ramparts magazine. 
Less than a year from the time the 
play was first shown to New York 
ihcatieagents, MacBird was fully 
capitalized, cast, and in rehearsal. 

Try-outs for MacBird will be 
held tonight in William Smith Au-

In previous years, the selection

The exchange program with the 
University of Warwick was start- 
ed through the efforts of Dr. Peter

hosted Maureen Pook, a junior

program was so successful that it 
has been expanded from one to

is hoped that the program could 
be expanded still further to in-

the opportunity to more students.

Bob stated that students general-

in a small school atmosphere this 
evaluation might cause hard feel-

we got from the questionnaires," 
he commented, "I feel that this

Plea For CRIA 

Within a three hour period on November 4, 1966, the 
flooding waters of the Arno surged through the streets of Flor- 
ence, Italy. The water averaged fifteen feet in depth in the 
city, twenty-four feet elsewhere. Thirty-nine thousand square 
miles of Central and Northern Italy were under water, and 
calculations of the damage to crops, buildings, monuments, 
churches, manuscripts, documents, archives and musical instru- 
ments defied accurate guess. Florence officials tentatively esti- 
mated that water and oil damage and cost of restoration to art 
objects alone would reach $160 million. 

han fifty area committees were 
) coordinate the sending of aid, 
nnanciai ana omerwise, to tne stricken Italian areas. The cen- 
tral committee is known as CRIA— Committee to Rescue 
Italian Art. Founded by two professors from Brown University 
and one from Harvard, CRIA offices began to accept offers 
for monetary and personal assistance from all over the country. 
The movement to support the relief efforts was particular- 
ly enthusiastic among colleges and universities in this country. 
While funds poured in from p 
auctions and other benefits to

in this most worthy project, the Elm has placed a receptacle 
in the library for student donations to CRIA. Funds collected 
there will be sent to the national headquarters of CRIA in 
New York. Perhaps student initiative will produce other meth- 
ods of raising money on behalf of the student body; the Elm 
: this first step will be generously supported. 

Shriver, asked by President Ken- 
nedy to become ihe first head of 
the Peace Corps, snorted, "That 
lemon." "Well," retorted Kennedy, 
"you make it lemonade." 

And lemonade it has become. In 
its five-year existence, the Peace

twenty times its original size: from 
five hundred Volunteers to over 
twelve thousand serving in forty-

College has continually contributed 
its fair share of students to the

underdeveloped areas in the world,

University, a pretty good team from Co 
also proved to be no match for Washinginn College as the Sho'- 
men cruised to a 20-6 victory last Wednesday. With the score 
11-1 at the half, Coach Kelly substituted almost anyone who 
could carry a stick. 

But everyone was not happy. Carl Ortman said that if he 
had known the score was so lopsided he would have stopped 
shooting. Sure, Carl. Also, this writer sends his condolences 
to Mark Madden, Ty Wilde and Ford Schuman who were 
finally convinced, hesitantly, to shed their long locks by the 
very persuasive Mr. PritzlafT. 

The big news of this young lacrosse season came last Sat- 
urday as the Sho'men dumped an excellent Brown University 
team by a 6-4 score. The game was tied many times, but the 
Sho'men made their lucky breaks count and stepped into the 
lead to stay in the fourth quarter. 

Ford Schuman was outstanding in the goal for the Sho'- 
men, making several good saves, but showing brilliance especial- 
ly in clearing the ball out of the goal area. Strangely, Ford 
had once planned to attend Wesleyan University. 

Contributing greatly to the victory were defensemen Pete 
Betts and Tom Heald. It is surprising to note that while play- 
ing against Brown, the defense allowed fewer goals than against 
either North Carolina or Wesleyan. Particularly instrumental 
in stopping the Brown scoring threat were defensemen Bryan 
Griffin and Ty Wilde who effectively played the extra-man de-

surprises combined to set W.C. 
back in its first meet of the year.

High scorer for Washington was 
Junior Woody Snyder with 13

home opener, resulted in a 6-3 loss

Hankey explained that

he felt it would be a definite dis- 
advantage to the candidates. 
"Usually a student taking office 
has won the position on the basis 
nf somehing and they feel that 
they have the support of the stu- 
dent body. It means something to 
have been chosen instead of some- 
one else. Three of the new officers

that it's not their fault," he con- 
tinued. "The

terminate the relationship with the 
C.I. A., and set about finding finan- 
cial support to replace that of the 

marked that the C.I.A. pressured 
other staff members to try to dis- 
courage Sherbourne, from dissolv- 
ing the connections between the 
two organizations. In spite of 
these pressures, Cutner reported 
that while the C.I.A. funds repre- 
sented 60% of the budget in 1964, 
this was reduced to only 7% by 
September of 1966, when the infor- 
mation "leaked out" about the 

Draft Board Help 

Cutner aJso noted that where 
N.S.A. officers could not convince 
their draft boards to defer them 
for at least the year they were in 
office, the C.I.A. would step in and 
help the students receive the neces- 
sary classification for deferrment. 

"No schools have dropped their 
N.S.A. membership since the 
C.I.A. link was made public. In 
fact, sixteen colleges have joined 
the N.S.A." though Cutner related 
that a number of colleges and uni- 
versities have seriously considered 
leaving the organization. He ad-

"Past presidents of the N.S.A.

Such was the position of two

Light Comedy 

A repertory group, the New 
York City Opera Company was 
presenting Giannini's The Servant 
of Two Masters, an opera adapted 
from a play by Cotdoni, an eigh- 
teenth century Italian playwrite. A 
quick, light, colorful comedy, the 
opera was an excellent one for 
those of us who had never seen 
a production before. 

A few minutes spent studying a 
copy of the libietto or the text of 
the play clarified what seemed to 
be a complex plot, comprehension 
being aided considerably by the 
fact that the opera was written 
in English. Dr. Brown's explana-

To the Editor: 

In the March 9th editorial of 
the Elm entitled, "Waiting for 
WRA," the editor questioned the 
flow of positive action by House 
Council on the problem of defining 
a clear conception of the house- 
mothers' duties. We of House 
Council feel that unjust implica- 
tions were imposed upon us and 
feel it incumbent upon us to cor- 

Evaluation Rating 

__ The Elm rates the evaluation a qualified success, based 
on the goals as stated in the introduction to the pamphlet. 
Certainly it provides more information about the courses than 
the grapevine (but is knowing that a certain course "does not 
stimulate . . . interest" yet "has a lasting effect and was ulti- 
mately a success" for the students really tell us more than a 
twisted grapevine tale could relate?). 

The success of the second objective of the evaluation may 
never be fully appraised: to "provide the faculty with a sincere 
and honest appraisal of their efforts, giving praise where it is 
due. and suggestion where it is warranted." 

Surely, the evaluation is a candid, honest attempt to de- 
scribe the merits and demerits of the teachers and their courses; 
yet there is room to criticize the style of the writing, if not the 
content itself. It appears that certain of the briefs were writ- 
ten hastily, due in part to the tight deadlines the writers faced. 
At least one brief was actually written during the class it eval- 
uated. But the language was less than subtle in a few cases, 
and a resume of critical comments may still be slated clearly 
without losing the general opinion of the students, if more 
diplomatic terms are used. 

The experience gained from this year's evaluation will, no 
doubt, be of significant importance in future efforts. Details 
relating to the printing, collating, and binding of the evaluation 
which were poorly planned this lime, will be far easier on the 
next go-round. Perhaps some questions "ill be re-phrased to 
ask more nearly what the (-valuators meant lo ask; more time 
will be allotted to the writing of the briefs, and to the review- 
ing of the briefs by the SGA Evaluation Committee; The 
Committee should investigate the charges thai seniors softened 
personal criticism of professors because they have to take com- 
prehensives from them shortly. 

The Elm fervently hopes that the evaluations will indeed 
be of value to students and faculty alike; that guidance and 
constructive criticism, respectively, may be beneficial; that this 
will not become simply the "official" grapevine and a sounding 
board for personal gripes at the faculty. 

'Moss Box 9 Houses 
Undiscovered Talent 

By Karen Laux 

"The Moss Box," which opened 
its doors to the College almost two 
months ago, is not posing an im- 
mediate threat to the popularity 
of "The Tombs" or "The Crazy 
Horse" in Georgetown, D. C. Nor 
is it promising to depopulate 
dances at the Chestertown Armory 
on Saturday nights. 

But quietly, and largely unno- 
ticed by many Washington College 
students, "The Moss Box" is be- 

coming the i 

P h0! 

offee house, which de- 
pends on student efforts, is offering 
an outlet for creative student ex- 
pression where none existed prev- 
iously. Entertainment, therefore, is 
branching out in all directions at 
"The Moss Box." 

Performances last weekend rang- 
ed from Dede Brewer's folk music 
to Nance Coch's "No Talent 
Band." In addition, entertainment 
may involve the presentation of a 
work by a well-known playwright 
original piece of dr 



ntroduced in this way. 

Guitarist To Entertain 
Although much talent comes 
from the campus, performers also 
include people from outside the 
college. Alan Freeman, a profes- 
sional guitarist, rame from New 

Bob Dalsemer, an entertainer 
from Baltimore who has performed 
at Carnegie Hall, is scheduled to 
sing and play the guitar and banjo 
on April 21. This Friday, Mr. 
Maloney, head of the Dramatics 
Department, will present "Krapp's 
Last Tape," a dramatic mono- 
logue by Samuel Beckett.

to SGA by Senator Steve Anuck, 
was passed cm to the Student Af-

examine and discuss the present 
situation and responsibilities of the 
housemother. A series of discus- 
sions, one of which Steve Amick 
attended, were promptly held. 

The final step, the submission of 
the report to Student Affairs, un- 
fortunately was never completed 
due to the illness of Dean Caton. 
Since our immediate role in the 
problem had been played and the 
results of our labors passed in to 
other hands, the Women's Resi- 
dence Council assumed that the 
report had been submitted as plan- 
ned, Obviously the failure lies not 
with any one person or organiza- 
tion. Why did not SGA or Student 
Affairs make known the absence 
of the report? As was stated, the 
report was overdue two months. 
Surely such dissatisfaction of the 
part of these two, organizations 
ought to have provoked one of 
them to approach the Residence 
Council. Clearly we feel that the 
guilt docs not completely rest with 

WRA is composed of all women

each floor, each dorm has access 
to representatives or council mem- 
hers. If WRA is to function prop- 
erly, the girls themselves must 
make use of these opportunities to 
make themselves heard. Without 
their cooperation, the organization 
must and shall fail. Perhaps a 
sharper awareness of the proper 
channels would serve not only our 
organization, but all organizations 
on campus. Certainly the policy of 
"passing the buck," as is so easily 
shown in this unfortunate incident, 
does not make for efficiency in

Pre- registration is at dinner Friday

tury mentality, Christianity is de- 
fective, bungling, and even cor- 
rupt," stated Deniel Callahan, As- 
sociate Editor of Commonweal and 
one of America's leading spokes- 
men for reform and liberalization 
in the Roman Catholic Church. 

Speaking in William Smith Au- 
ditorium last Tuesday, Mr. Calla- 
han established the image of an 
ideal Christian: one who was "un- 
yielding, confident, and sure in his 
faith" ; one who accepted "the 
faith of our fathers"; and one to 
whom serious criticisms of the reli- 
gion were an indication that the 
doubter was "ignorant, immoral, or 
had bad faith." 

Evades Objections 

The ideal Christian "evades 
genuine and serious objectii ~ " 

_ lized that the 
churches had critiefsed each other 
in the past, refused to consider a 
major revision in his beliefs. The 
idealist's primary personal goal is 
salvation; "Love thy neighbor" is 
his guidepost. 

Callahan stated that this type of 

Christian is "a danger to everyone. 
This kind of person is likely to find 
that his religious life has turned to 
ashes." The difficulty for the 
Christian comes, Mr. Callahan 
feels, in relating the "security of 
his faith" to "contemporary life." 

No Future 
Does the future belong to Chris- 
tianity?" It doesn't seem to," he 
remarked. "Contemporary man is

Mr. Callahan does not feel that 
the Church has had any impact at 
all on the Viet problem, and only 
"qualified significance on the prob- 
lems of cybernation, automation, 
and slum clearance," he stated. 
"No one seems to listen to religious 
spokesmen any longer," he added. 

The suppression of the freedom 
of the individual by the Church 
was commented on by Mr. Calla- 
han. He said that the first task of 
tnc individual is to find out where 
he really stands, recognizing that 
he alone is, in the end, responsible 
for his own beliefs. "We must see

'Hello Out There!' 

By Donald Dolce _ 

A dual production by the Dra- 
matics Workshop of William Sar- 
oyan's Hello Out There was pre- 
sented April 7 in William Smith 
Auditorium. The play itself des- 
cribes a fatal episode in the life 
of a jailed gambler — charged 
with rape — in the small Texas 
town of Matador. 

The lonely man has a much 
more vivid appreciation of life 
than those in the community. He 
becomes acquainted with the jan- 
itor — a young girl named Emily 
— and through this fleeting ac- 
quaintance, they become quite at- 
■ other. They plan

woman supposedly raped suddenly 
enters the jail house and fatally 

Setting Symbolic 

The play has effective comments 
on contemporary society. First, the 
setting is symbolic — Matador, 
Texas. The matador is a brave 
man who enters the bull ring risk- 
ing his life for glory. Here, the 
citizens of the small community are 
shown as cowards. 

The husband enters the jail, 
knowing beforehand that he will 
win. He reacts only because of his 
friends' comments if he does not. 
He shoots the defenseless gambler 
who stands enclosed, trapped like 
the coyote he claims to be. 

The gambler's plaintive cry of 
"Hello out there" — hoping some- 
where to find a person who is larg- 
er than the narrowmindedness of 
Matador's population — is answer- 
ed by Emily. Emily is much more 
sensitive than the rest and attempts 
to save him. Seeing the shallowness 
of her surroundings, her wail of

The gambler is the catalyst who 
awakens her from the wasted life 
she experiences in Matador. He 
promises her something better and 
gives her money to achieve the 
physical transportation to that 
place. She also wants to leave the 
limitations of the town. Because of 
this metamorphosis, she rises above 
the rest of the community just as 
her dead confidant once did —

end does his relationship with her 
seem to reach a state of vitality. 
The production lacked this vitali- 
zation. April Marshall was superb 
as the girl. Despite this, the lack 
of communication between her and 
the gambler was quite apparent 

The Jack Bloom - Pete Herbst 
production was definitely the high 
point of the duo. While Howdy 
DeHoff was the trapped coyote, 
pacing restlessly around the jai" 

— spirited and 
unweary. Ably assisted by Sharon 
Strausser, their dialogue and feel- 
ing toward one another was 
thoroughly genuine. 

Deficient, Not Wrong 

Kipnes' interpretation can not 
be called wrong; it was simply 
deficient in the appeal that De- 
Hoffs had. One certainly did not 
have the feeling of despair toward 
Kipnes' weariness as they had to- 
ward DeHofTs anxiety, which was 
quite apparent. 

Student productions as these 
should definitely be encouraged. 
Each was an honest effort and the 
Workshop is to be commended for 
their efforts in the dual production.

Undefeated Hopkins 
Beats Sho' Stickmen 


by Dick Louck 

Last Saturday, Johns Hopkins, for the first time since their 
opening game against Mt. Washington lacrosse club, faced a 
good lacrosse team, and possible defeat. Little Washington Col- 
lege collected its Strongest weapons and almost defeated the 
probable 1967 national champions. 

Neither Yale nor Princeton, both highly touted Ivy League

issions of Satur- 
and, will not be 

Ihr- three watchwords of the week which paid ofT in the 
game wi re: Pride, Poise, and Ball. That is what the Sho'men 
used to give Hopkins such a close game. Each player who had a 
part in the game displayed those qualities. 

Pride was a big factor: being a small school, an obvious 
underdog, and the butt of much criticism. The Sho'men were 
out to prove that they were as good as they were cracked up to 
be, that the wins over die likes of Brown, Harvard and other 
big name tens were not just flukes of luck. 

Poise, that certain quality of confidence, talent and finesse 
was demonstrated perfectly by the two standout players of the 
game, Jim Chalfant and Ford Schuman. Schuman, in the 
goal, repeatedly stopped the "impossible" shots, the point- 
blank bullets that should be sure goals. 

He also showed that poise out of the goal, clearing the ball 
away from the »oal area and bringing the crowd to its feet 
with his exciting play. 

Chalfant played perhaps the best game anyone of us on the 
team has seen. Jim was always there, "there" being exactly 
where he was needed. Poised on both offense and defense, ready 
to make just the right play at the right time, Chalfant earned 
the respect of every one of the thousands of fans. 

Hopkins won the game, but Washington College won a 
moral victory. Perhaps this shock was just what Hopkins needs 
to get ready for the Navv and Maryland games. At any rate, 
when a little "bush league" team from the Eastern Shore nearly 
knocks ofT one of the greatest lacrosse titans, people in power 
begin to ask why. 

Trackmen Triumph; 
Journey to Loyola 

Washing on College's track team 
evened its record Saturday after- 
noon by defeating a weak Western 
Maryland squad 96 to 49. The 
squad is now 1 and 1. 

The word for die cindermen 
was "depth" as they collected 10 
first place finishes, 13 seconds, and 
7 thirds. In the field events Wash- 
iiigton College swept the shot put 
with McCinnis taking first with a 
heave of 40'7" and Mock and 
Murphy finishing second ihird re- 
spectively. Pete Johnson won the 
javelin with a toss of 177'1/a" and 
McCinnis took second. Johnson's 
loss was only eight feet under the 
school record. Since he is only a 
freshman, it appears that the 
school record is in jeopardy. 

Woody Snyder had another fine 

ing in three events. This week lit- 

er was a close second in the high! 
with Snyder third. Bohacker took 
a spill in the 440's and the best 
W. C. could do was Snyder's third. 
Both the 440 and mile relays 
went to W. C. in times of 45.6 and 
3;40.3. In both of these races, the 
teams had no difficulty in running

Washington Nine 
Seeks First Win 

The Washington College base- 
ballers are still looking for their 
first victory after dropping three 
games last week. The losses 
brought their record to 0-4. Last 
year after the first four games, the 
team boasted a record of 2-2. 

Last Tuesday, the Sho'men lost 
both ends of a doubleheader to 
Western Maryland. In the first 
game, the Sho'men let some fine 
pitching go to waste in a 4-1 de- 

Scattered Hitting 

The game was tied going into 
the seventh inning when the Ter- 
rors went ahead to stay. The Sho'- 
men were hurt by scattered hitting 
and five errors. Senior Sonny Wun- 
derlich was the losing pitcher. 

In somewhat of a wild second 
game, a six-run Washington rally 
in the final inning fell short, 
stranding three runners. The big 

loaded double by Al Perry. The 
final score was 10-7 with Al Streel- 
man the losing pitcher. 

Unearned Runs 

On Saturday, the Sho'men 
fumbled away a close game by 
making six errors in an 8-5 defeat 
to Swarthmore. All totaled, six of 
the eight Swarthmore runs were 
unearned. An overworked Wunder- 
Hch was the victim of shoddy sup- 
port and was charged with the 

Commenting on the Swarthmore 
game, Coach Lefty Elliott said 
that he was encouraged by the 
pickup in hitting as the team 
banged out 11 hits. However, he 
was distrubed with the poor field- 
ing and the numher of strikeouts 
by his team. 

High Praise 

Individually, George Buckless 
had three hits and Wunderlich and 
Streelman two apiece. Coach El- 
liott also had high praise for the 
defensive work of freshman Larry 
Martin, who made several fine 
plays in sharing the third base 
duties with Lou House. 

Still looking for the right de- 
fensive combination, Elliott has 
shifted Alan Perry, the regular 
catcher for the past two seasons, 
to first base and has named fresh- 
man Dave Bruce behind the plale 
Bruce responded by throwing out 
the leading Swarthmore base steal-

relief pitcher Dick Car- 

Streelman Stars 

The Sho'men hope to crack the 
win column on Tuesday in an 
away game with Penn Military 
College. Al Streelman has been 
named the starting pitcher, ft is 
hoped that he will be ready to go 
the distance. Last year the game 
with PMC was rained out. Two 
years ago the Sho'men lost 4-3. 

Coach Elliott hopes that the 
Sho'men will be able to reduce the 
number of errors and strikeouts. 
In four games the Sho'men have 
committed eighteen errors and 
struck out forty-two times. 

The hitting according to Coach 
Elliott had showed signs of im- 
proving and if the pitching con- 
tinues to improve, it is hoped that 
the team will gather momentum 
for a successful season.

Two Crews 

Enough students to fill two eight 
oared boats attend his sessions each 
week, and have already begun to 
notice that they are able to row 
together for short distances. Row- 
ing smoothly in unison is difficult, 
particularly when the entire crew 
is new to the sport, and must mas-

the catch, the pull through, and 
the finish. Subtleties

returning to the catch position are 
being mastered, but in the mean- 
time, bloody palms and thumbs 
tell of strains on hitherto unused 
muscles and skin. 

An eight-oared shell is about 
sixty-one feet long, with a beam of 
about twenty four inches. Depth 
of a shell is only nine and one-half 
to ten inches, and these proportions 
indicate the importance of balance 
in a shell. A quick move in get- 
ting into the boat or when leaving,

Students Support My king 
In Uncontested SGA Race 

Steve Myking, 
posed for the Student Government 
presidency, won a vote of confi- 
dence for students in the elections 
held last Friday. 

In the Senate meeting last Mon- 
day, Cliff Hankey, president of 
SGA, announced that Marie War- 
ner and Pat Dorsey also received 
supporting votes for the offices of 
vice president and secretary, re- 
spectively. Jim Rawle will be 
treasurer of SGA for the next 
academic year. 

Discussing _ r . 
SGA action, Myking stated that 
he hopes to execute proposals and 
"get the machinery going for the 
Judiciary Board." Senate will also 
work on student suggestions for 
improvement of the Teacher Eval-

More Demands On Senators 
Myking added that he plans to 
demand more from individual sena-

evenly, and to make sure that the 
senators communicate better with 
their constituents. "I feel that 
about three-fourths of the senators 
neglect this responsibility," he

A proposed program for sex ed- 
ucation has attracted considerable 

dents and faculty, but getting be- 
yond the proposal stage and set- 
ting up a good program seems to 
be causing some problems. 

The suggestion was first made 
by Dr. James Hoopes, Instructor 
of Philosophy at Washington Col- 
lege. Having talked with many 
students and several faculty mem- 
bers, Dr. Hoopes felt there might 
be interest in such a program, The 
Student Life Report, published

program. Several faculty members, 
the student deans, and Dr, Van 
Eyck Groebler, the college's con- 
sulting psychologist, have indicat- 
ed an interest in working with a 
sex education program. 

The problem of a sponsoring or- 
ganization to set up and structure 
a program remains unsolved. Both 
the Student Senate and the Wo- 
men's Residence Association have 
discussed the project and have ask- 
ed their constituants for sugges- 
tions. The Wesley Club, mean- 
while, has begun a scries of discus-

Washington College. 

Since one architectural firm created a master plan for the 
development of the physical plant at the college, another firm 
has been hired to execute plans very sirnlar_jo, if not identical 
to the original ones. 

When space in building— indeed the buildings themselves 
— and, of course, money, come at such high premiums, it strikes 
us that some useful purpose may be found for Cain. It is a 
fundamentally sound structure, and renovation or modification 
of its interior would, surely, cost less than its total demolition, 
and would provide the college with what we are assured is badly 
needed space for ;~ny number of projects. 

The main floor might be used for lectures — too big for 
Dunning— too small for the new Fine Arts Building theatre. 
Rehearsals for the college Players, the Drama workshop, or the 
Chester Players' productions could be staged without interfer- 
ing with the tight si. Iirdulint; ol the Fine Arts stage. Communi- 
ty groups could meet there — groups which are too large to 
meet in the Alumni House) which is currently being used for 
some local meetings). If the use of Cain for theatre purposes 
were explored further, the college might be able to receive a 
grant from the Humanities Division of the National Founda- 
tion of Arts and Sciences. This group is seeking to aid regional 
or community theatre groups. Chestertown has an established. 
performing organization, and presumably could qualify for a 
grant, relieving the college of at least a part of the burden of 
renovating or converting Cain to its new uses. 

The gym could be used as a shooting and sound stage for 
video tape programs when the college acquires the equipment, 
as it is planning to do. If an FM radio station were established 
on campus, the front office space is a natural location for the 
studio. The downstairs area is well-suited for showering and 
dressing or make-up work for theatre productions. The main 
floor area could also be used for music rehearsals or practice 
sessions by campus or visiting combos.

Sex Education 

The Elm supports efforts on behalf of the expressed stu- 
dent and faculty interest in establishing some sort of sex edu- 
cation "program" at Washington College. 

Without including specifics or details, proposals have been 
made to the WRA, the SGA and other campus organizations to 
sponsor a series of discussions— not only about the "facts of life" 
but also about the larger, moral issues related to sex: love, the 
family, and one's obligations to others, for example. 

The mechanics of the "lectures" and "seminars" (factual 
information would best be presented in a lecture; discussion in a 
small, informal group) remain to be worked out— perhaps dif- 
ferently by each sponsoring organization. However, it i ' 
that this is at least one gap in the educational process 
college which may be closed, to the benefit of everyor 
cerned. The idea of having a sex education program is a 
one, and deserves college-wide support.

thwarted by a 13-hit PMC attack, 
and shutout pitching by left-hand- 
ers Bill Selwood and Jim Coleman. 
The Sho'men used Cam Smith, 
Dick Carrington, and Rick Weiser 
in a vain effort to halt the run- 
scoring. When it was all over, 
Washington had been whitewash- 
ed, 10-0. The only noticeable high- 
lights for the Sho'men were three 
hits by George Bucklcss and two 
shutout innings in relief by pitcher 
Rick Weiser. 
Double-Header Against Upsala 
Following this encounter was 
home double-header against Upsa- 
la of New Jersey. After being rout- 
ed in the opener, 10-1, the Sho'- 
men held a 4-2 lead in the night-

Despite the poorest team per- 
formance of the year, the Wash- 
ington College lacrosse team de- 
feated Loyola Greyhounds last Sat- 
urday in Baltimore 9-6. 

In the game, the Sho'men were 
outshot and outhustled by their 
upset-minded opponents. It was 
obvious from the start of the game 
that the Greyhounds were psychol- 
ogically up for the game while the 
Sho'men, after facing Hopkins last 
week-end, were not ready. 
Poor Conditions 

While not attempting to make 
excuses for the team's showing, 

Coach Pritzlaff stated that the con- 
ditions of the field were extreme- 
ly poor and that the Sho'men had 
three players, Ron Regan, Pat 
Gray, and Steve Clagett, who 
could not go at full speed because 
of injuries. Also, ho believed that 
the refereeing was the poorest that 
he had ever seen.

Sloppy Play 
The first half of the game was 
ry sloppy. The Sho'men could

At the start of the second half

Scoring Divided 

The scoring for Washington Col- 
lege was divided between six play- 
ers, Carl Ortman, Mike Kelly, Pat 
Gray. Ron Regan, Mark Madden, 
and Jim Chalfant. 

Sustituting for injured goalie 
Ford Schuman, Dave Boulden had 
an outstanding game for the Sho'- 
men as he tallied twenty-nine saves. 

This Saturday, the stickmen 
journey to Swarthmore to play an- 
other game in their defense of the 
Strnhbar title. Last year the Sho'- 

licli pitched -!\ .umng innings, but Strccl: 

tired in the seventh, and was re- loss a 

lieved by Carrington. Dick got one only I 
while allowing four 

"scratch" hits. Cam Smith then 
came in, and threw one pitch to 
retire the side on a flvout to Harry 

Sho'men Lead 

In the second game, Washington 
jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the 
openiny inning on a leadoff triple 
by Dave Bruce, a walk to George 
Buckless, and a triple by Bob Van- 
derclock. In the third inning the 
Sho'men made the score 4-2 on 
another walk to George Bucklcss, 
a double by Bob Vanderclock, a 
bunt single by Al Streelman, and 
Al Perry's sacrifice fly. 

Poor defense once again spelled 
defeat for Coach Elliot's team, as 
Upsala scored three runs in the 
fifth inning, all unearned, Al 

irbed the hard-luck 
loss as he gave up seven hits and 
only two earned runs. 

One cannot expect a team with 
an 0-7 record to show too much* 
on the positive side, but a look 
at the statistics docs show hitters 
over the .300 mark, with George 
Bucklcss at ,333 and Bob Vander- 

clock ! 


Pitcher Below Potential 
The Sho'men pitching staff is, 
to say the least, having its (roubles. 
The "lowest" ERA on the staff is 
Al Strcelman's 5.25. Rick Weiser 
has not given up an earned run in 
two innings, but each of the other 
pitchers arc performing far below 
their potential. 

Upcoming home contests against 



A Quick 

by Dick Louck 

Last Saturday, Washington College again played the David 
and Goliath bit. Sadly, the Sho'men found themselves cast in 
the role of Goliath opposing the weak David (Loyola). 

Loyola showed surprising hustle, and not-so-surprising 
rough play, challenging the Sho'men and approaching to within 
one goal (7-6) before finally losing 9-6. For the second week 
the "David" team worried the "Goliath" team. 

The Baltimore papers figured Washington to romp, but 
they failed to take into account the advantage of playing on 
Loyola's home field, the probable low ebb of the Sho'men's

Playing on Loyola's field is an experience thankfully de- 
nied our loyal fans. The field, besides being small and concrete- 
hard, is constructed on a baseball diamond — complete with an 
obstructing pitcher's mound. It is probably one of the worst 
fields in the country. 

In addition to the deplorable conditon of the field, the 
Loyola fans are another problem which the players dislike. 
In this respect, perhaps only Washington College fans can 
match Loyola as cutting, loud and critical. Their loyalty can- 
not be denied, but their methods certainly can be improved. 

Loyola used their advantages to the fullest, often breaking 
up attempted clears by the Washington defense, and using the 
hometown referees to best advantage. The game was rough, 
often dirty, but Loyola just wasn't able to match the finesse 
of Washington College. 

I must give Loyola credit for being scrappy. They out- 
hustled us, out-shot us and played dirtier and got away with 
it better than the Sho'men. So, as the «ame progressed, the 
injured list grew, tempers flared, and the mighty Goliath turned 
its scoring machine selector to "Rc.nan-Ortmari-Chalfant" and 
pulled away from the scrappy Hounds. 

Notes — Ours is the only team I know of that has two official 
coaches and approximately five unofficial assistants — yet what 
we really need is a good trainer — six players are at half or zero 
strength because of injuries which would be considered minor 
with competent care — these injuries, with proper care could be 
gone in a matter of days, but instead will linger on, maybe for 
weeks, because there is no one on campus who can afford the 
time, has the ability, or the equipment to properly handle the 
injuries, and the hurt goes on.

"ESP and Its Philosophical Im- 
plications" will be the subject of 
a talk this Friday evening at the 
William James Forum. The speak- 
er will be Professor Lewis Foster 
of the Philosophy Department of 
the College of William and Mary. 
ESP (Extra-Sensory Perception) 
is a general term that includes a 
variety of ways of knowing apart 
from ordinary sense perception, 
among them precognition and com- 
munication with the dead. Pro- 
fessor Foster's talk will center on 
cases of precognition — cases in 
which an event has been foretold 
in advance and later come true. 
Such cases are the easiest to docu- 
ment and verify in ESP literature. 
Professor Foster is currently 
teaching a course in Eastern phi- 
losophy at the College of William 
and Mary. Together with such 
eminent philosophers as C- D. 
Broad and H. H. Price he believes

; therefore, that it is an ideal tit 
tion die possibility of establishing 
system at Washington College. 

There has been much activity over this plan in colleges 
throughout the country, and many different proposals and meth- 
ods of implementation have been suggested. 

The letter grades A, B, and C might be made a passing 
grade, D and F failures. Perhaps a certain number of the re- 
quired thirty-two courses a student must take to graduate could 
be included in the past-fail plan. In other words, not all courses 
need be handled in this manner, but it would be the student's 
option to decide which of the courses he selects would be mark- 
ed according to the "pass" or "fail" system. 

These courses would not be included in the computation 
of the cumulative average. Some courses could be excluded 
from the plan at the discretion of the department. The plan 
could be made available to students in all classes, or limited to 
upperclassmen. The past-fail opdon could be exercised in 
courses in a student's major or minor fields, or in an elective 

These suggestions are only some possibilities which have 
been considered, and in some cases, implemented, elsewhere. Jt 
seems to us that a pass-fail grading system is one step, a good 
step, closer to reducing the emphasis on grades Students and 
faculty are aware of the temptation to prepare only for ma- 
terial a student may expect to find on an examination. In ef- 
fect, the student is not really learning the course material; he 
is preparing for examinations on anticipated selected bits of 
course material. Reduced emphasis on grades, while retain- 
ing a yardstick for measuring achievement, may well induce a 
greater emphasis on learning for learning's sake. 

The Elm proposes that the SGA establish a committee 
composed of faculty and students to investigate the possibilities 
of and interest in this idea. 

While healthy competition would continue to exist, sure-

Inebriation reduces one's resistance to temptations such as 
smashing windows and vending machines, staining or defacing 
walls and pavements, propositioning women (who may be just 
as drunk), and playing or making loud "music" at late hour*. 

This kind of behavior demonstrates a distinct lack of imag- 
ination and one wonders whether the qualities of style: wit, 
charm, and grace are at a low ebb. The students have an op- 
portunity to prove, most importantly to themselves, that these 
qualities have not disappeared from Washington College. 

A recent newspaper editorial stated: "In the time tense 
with war, protests, searches for identity and assertive individ- 
uality there is an increasing tendency to forget that it is quali- 
ties of style, humor, courtesy, and personal grace and that af- 
ter all make life bearable."

Elm Interviews New College Dean 

Burns "Disenchanted" With Penn; 
Likes Small College Atmosphere 

By Dick Heymann 

A new Dean of Washington Col- 
lege, Dr. Landon C. Burns, Jr. 
was appointed to the post early in 
February by the Board of Visitors 
and Governors. Replacing Acting- 
Dean Nicholas Neivlin, Dr. Burnt 
will take office here on July 1. 

The new Dean is currently serv- 
ing as assistant professor of English 
at the University of Penrnylnrnia, 
in Philadelphia. The Elm conduct- 
ed an interview with Dr. Burns in 
the faculty lounge at the univer- 
sity, to obtain his views concern- 
ing plans he has made for Wash- 
ington College, some of his hopes 
for the college, and his views on 
education in general.

He received his B.A. in 1951 
from Yale University. He earned 
his M.A. in 1956 and his doctorate 
in 1959, both from Yale, after serv- 
ing as a lieutenant in the United 
States Navy from 1951 to 1954.

This process of improving the

and constitutes a long-range pro-

Ph.D. Prestige 
He recognizes the prestige value 
of the Ph.D. degree and while it 
ily related to the 
tality of an individual as a teach- 
, he plans to maintain the high 
tio of Ph.Dd.'s among the fac- 

ed student body, rather than well 
rounded students he commented. 
This means it is better to have 
individuals especially talented or 
able in a certain area than a stu- 
dent less talented in more fields. 
In this way, the student body when 
viewed as a whole is well rounded.

September Opening Slated 
For College Arts Center 

By Carolyn Erwin 
If the wisdom contained in the 
old adage, "things worth hiving 
are well worth waiting for" can 
be relied upon, the Fine Arts Cen-

awaited project in Washington 
College's eight year expansion, 
should be the most prized addition 
to college facilities. 

The Fine Arts Center, which 
suffered many delays and setbacks 
due to material and manpower 
shortages, will be ready for use in 
September according to the latest 
reports from Mr. Tony Parkes, 
Director of Department. 

Construction Complete 
Major construction on the build-

APRIL 27. 1967 



X Quick 

By Dick Louck 

Last Tuesday, Towson Stale College came to Chestertoun 
ready to play their most important game of the season. They 
were going to try to knock Washington College from their 
champion's berth in the Strobahr division. Baltimore papers, 
even the Lacrosse Newsletter had given Towson a good chance. 

Ron Regan, Jim Chalfant, Barry Drew, Carl Ortman and 
other top scorers were to change that prediction rather quickly 
and dish out a large portion of humble pie to the paper Tigers 
from Towson. The Sho'men unleashed an amazingly accurate 
and potent offense to romp by a 20-8 score. 

Swarthmore College, expected to be big and hruising 
proved even less a threat to the Sho'men in last Saturday's tilt, 
which the Kcllymcn won easily, 10-3. Washington nicked in 
five goals before Swarthmore could tally, then tipped the score 
to 7-1 before Swarthmore scored again. 

By this time the Sho'men were beginning to play ho-hum 
ball and made many amateurish mistakes. Still, the Swarth- 
more team failed to capitalize on most of the mistakes and 
remained behind. 

Ford Schurnan was again outstanding in the goal. Once he 
raced downfield, faked about four players cold and drove in to 
take a shot, only to have the ball hang up in his stick and go 
wide of the goal. 

Tom Heald, a speedy defensive mate, also had a chance to 
score as he ran towards the goal, on a one-on-one with the 
goalie, and threw the ball over the goal and out of bounds. 

As the Sho'men cruised, the Swarthmore crease attackman 
remarked, "We didn't expect to win, we only wanted to give 
you guys a good game." Wish they had, then maybe Oris, 
Chal, Regs, Rock and others would have gotten more fired up 
and really swamped Swarthmore. 

I can't help feeling a little sorry for the guys from Towson. 
They really thought they had a great team and were going to 
teach those "creeps" from the Eastern Shore a lesson. Well, 
the tables turned on the Tigers. One could say they were 
dumped, as well as turned. 

They were, to put it mildly, shocked. Their coach didn't 
talk to the team until long after the game had ended. The 
players walked back to the locker room stunned, and it seemed 
they had lost the championship of the world. 

Some were angry. One remarked, "That number thirty- 
seven was the biggest farmer I have ever seen." Too bad that

Donna Blatt '68 

Dear Editor: 

The most naive would agree that 
a course evaluation guide must be 
the result of an objective interpre- 
tation of student comments. The 
entire value of such a guide rests 
upon that understanding. For the 
most part Evaluation '67 was a 
success. Most evaluations were ob- 
jective and used often such terms 
as: "The majority of students felt 
. .". "A few . .", "The students 
were'divided . . .". 

However, a few evaluations 
failed to keep that necessary ob- 
jectivity and are consequently of 
little use to either the students or 
the professors of those courses. For 
the student evaluator to suddenly 
lose sight of the fact that he is 
supposed to be interpreting data 
and not offering his personal opin- 
ion, is, of course, a grave error 
in any type of objective reporting. 
Showing partiality by a religious- 
like admiration for a professor is 
just as great a fault as showing a 
personal dislike for a course or a 

tn an evaluation beginning with 
a statement such as "A student 
can afford to miss a class without 
missing a thing" is obviously a 
subjective commentary. It immedi- 
ately throws the whole evaluation 
into a personal and emotional ar- 
gument. Once establishing such a 
strong opinion at the beginning, 
the writer must not change his 
tone in the remainder of the report 
lest he appear to be inconsistent. 
Any positive comments must be 
interpreted in a way to support 
the polemic already established. 
Poor evaluators, reporters, and 
jurors do this without realizing it. 

Those few erring evaluations, 
being a part of the whole, have 
the tendency of throwing bad light 
on the whole Evaluation '67 , and 
thus encouraging adverse com- 
ments such as "irresponsible", "in- 
sincere" and "not serious". Eval- 
uations '67 '68, '69, '70 deserve

they intend to spend only on them- 
selves. Not so the Washington Col- 
lege Players. This group used a 
portion of the profits from its dra- 
matic productions to subsidize two 
trips to the National Theatre in 
Washington, D. C. The cost of a 
ticket, including round-trip bus 
transportation, was three dollars 
per person — a real bargain by 
anyone's standards. Since these 
tickets were available to the entire 
college community, the Players 
should be commended for their 

But how was this generosity re- 
dents and faculty members alike 
chose to spend two Saturday eve- 
nings doing something else. The 
first performance drew a respect- 
able but modest number of people, 
but attendance at the second (and 
ironically the better performance 
of the two) was disgustingly small. 
In several cases, people who had 
signed up for tickets cancelled out 
without notifying the Players that 
they weren't going, leaving the or- 
ganization with unused tickets for 
which the group had already paid. 

I believe that everyone has a 
right to select that form of enter- 
tainment which he considers most 
enjoyable. However, in a town 
where one hears constant com- 
plaints that there is "nothing to 
do," the lack of support for these 
excursions is inexcusable. If the 
Washington College community 
chooses to ignore such opportuni- 
ties, it must expect to he denied

Ribicoff 9 s Tax Plan 
Allays Tuition Costs 

The United States Senate has 
approved by a 53-26 vote a plan 
to provide a federal income tax 
credit of up to $325 for tuition, 
books and fees paid by students in 
colleges, universities and other 
post-high school institutions. Final 
enactment of the plan probably 
will depend on the decisions made 
by a joint Senate-House of Repre- 

person who pays the tuition. Thus, 
it would be available to working 
students and wives as well as to 
parents and other relatives. Par- 
ents with more than one child in 
college or graduate school may get 
a separate credit for each. 

"Over two-thirds of the benefits 
of this amendment would go to 
families earning less than $10,000 

year," Ribicoff said. A formula 


The tax credit plan was offered 
by Senator Abraham Ribicoff, D- 
Conn., as an amendment to a

The Director of the play is Tim-

Fine Arts building and chairman 
of the drama department. 

Included in the cast are veteran 
Player performers John Merrill as 
MacBird, Christy Kent as Lady 
MacBird and Pete Herbst as his 

Dick Louck portrays John Ken 
O'Dunc, with brothers Bobby and 
Teddy played by Mike Young and 
Ray Felton, respectively. MacBird's 
two daughters are played by Judy

roles of the Egg of Head, the Earl 
of Warren, and Wayne of Morse 
are filled by Gil Bradford, Brian 
Kehoe, and Charles Hemming, re- 

The supporting cast of Senators, 
Congressmen, aides, witches, and 
reporters includes Sandy Ayres, Bill 
Stalling*, Barbara Miller, Larry 
Clark, Howdy DeHoff, Bob Hunt- 
er, and Larry Varon. 

MacBird, which began its four 
day run here last night, is the 
most controversial play produced 
this year, both on Broadway and 

at Washington College. J.i Edgar 
Hoover, Director of the F.B.I. , 
called MacBird "a satirical piece 
of trash which maliciously defames 
the President of our country . . ." 
Some graduates of Washington 
College and other persons have 
written to the college and express- 
ed similar sentiments, "Where are 
our censors?" queried one letter. 

Written in Shakespearean verse, 
touches of Hamlet and MacBeth 
are to be found. However, the style 
is predominately Mrs. Garson's — 
a contemporary interpretation of 
the Elizabethan drama. 

A parody of Shakespeare's Mac- 
Beth, MacBird characterizes the 

Kennedy-Johnson rivalry. In this 
political satire, Mrs. Garson de- 
picts the two-facedneu of all pol- 

MacBird, who pledgei support 
and friendship to John Ken 
O'Dunc, secretly plots to take over 
the crown. Similar to the situation 
in MacBtth, MacBird plans the 
death of John Ken O'Dunc in hi* 
lust for power. 

MacBird is the final production 
for the flayers this year. It will 
also be the final production staged 
in William Smith Auditorium as

The first year and a half that 
this system was operating, it was 
affiliated solely with the Garnett 
High School. However, this year, 
Chestertown High School was in- 
tegrated into the program. Doug- 
las Unfried, Student Director of 
the Tutorial Program, stated "that 
the Negro child has benefitted 
more than the white tutee, in 
many cases, because of the limit-

in his family environment. In con-

Having written to several other 
schools to find out about other 
curfew systems, the committee pre- 
pared a tentative plan for a sys-

but eliminated a set curfew. "The 
problem with this plan was that it 
would require hiring an extra em- 
ployee to let girls in when they 
return to campus," Miss Barnes 
explained, "The administration is 
not convinced that the ptychlogical 
value of a no-curfew system is 
worth hiring an extra employee." 
"We're a little diicouraged," re- 
marked one committee member, 
"but we feel that this is important

Experiment With Curfews 

The college's administration maintains that it does not 
like to play the in loco parenti role, and there is now an oppor- 
tunity to prove that statement. 

Through the Women's Residence Association, efforts are 
being made to establish a system of no curfews for senior wom- 
en. The Elm wholeheartedly supports their position, and hopes 
the administration will give next year's senior women a chance 
to prove that they are capable of handling the responsibilities 

The objectives as stated in the WRA proposal are 1) "To 
permit senior women more freedom in arranging their time and 
activities;" 2) "To provide an example for upperclass women 
and at the same time a privilege for senior women" and 3) "Ul- 
1 most importantly, to form an increasingly mature 
esponsible college student and graduate." 

As the proposal also states, if by their senior year, the wom- 
en of Washington College are not capable of handling the re- 
sponsibility they will have to face immediately after receiving 
their diploma, "the college is failing somewhere in its responsi- 
bility to graduate mature adults." 

According to the new plan, girls would sign-out, giving the 
information necessary to reach her in the event of an emergency, 
and seal the information in an envelope. This would not be 
opened unless emergency existed, or in the event that the girl 
was more than one-half hour late in returning (based on the 
time she signed out for, indicating the time she expected to re- 
Girls would be required to leave before curfew, if they ex- 
pect to stay out beyond it; deadline for sign-out would be 10:00 
P.M. Girls must return by 7:00 A.M. unless they have signed 
out for a weekend or an overnight. 

Specifics about implementation of the new curfew system 
remain to be settled, but it is clear that this is an honest attempt 
to exercise a responsibility and a privilege. The senior women 
of Washington College should be given the chance to do so. 

Tuition — Tax Break 

The results of a questionnaire completed by Washington 
College freshmen indicate that about one-third of their families 
earn less than $10,000 annually. If this proportion is even* 
closely reflected in the family incomes of students in the other 
three classes, Senator Abraham RibicofTs tax credit plan (de- 
scribed elsewhere in this issue) is of no smalt financial impor-

E-lectrical Banana 
Is Found Appeeling 

Students dancing to ihe tune of 
"Mellow Yellow" have discovered 
a new and legal way to take a trip 
with the e-lec-trical banana that 

British singer Donavan sang of in 
his song — and not by slipping on 
the peels. 

Students who are in the know 
have the formula down pat: 
"scrape off the white fibers from 
the inside of a banana peel, bake 
them at 400° until dry, grind them 
up and smoke in a pipe," they 

One Somerset connoisseur offer- 
ed a variation to the recipe: "put 
the inside of the peels of 2 bunch- 
es of bananas in a baking pan and 
place in a refrigerator until brown. 
Then bake at 425° for four hours. 
You can either eat it or smoke 
it," he added. 

Although sales on bananas have- 
n't zoomed at the Chestertown 
A&P, the saleslady did notice a 
few students picking over the dis- 
play of bananas and buying one or 
two. The bananas sell for 12c a 
pound — a lot cheaper than cig- 


Two Students Plan

of Madrid to study during their 
junior year. They will receive full 
credit here for the courses they 
take through the New York Uni- 
versity Program. 

With visions of Spain running

"Sort of High" 
A group of Reid Hall freshmen 
whipped up a batch of banana 
scrapings but the results were dis- 
appointing. "Nothing happened," 
sighed one coed, "and the smell 
was terrible." One girl reported 
that she felt "sort of high" after 
a drag on bananas effluvia, but 
then added that she felt pretty 
good even before puffing. 

It was suggested that Philip 
Scott-Smith, a veteran pipe smok- 
er, was adding a touch of banana 
to his tobacco mixture. "No," he 
declined, "I think I'll stick to my 
Brinkely's mixture." 

The "high" everyone is talking 
about is caused by a chemical con- 
tained in the bananas and their 
peels called saratonin, a chemical 
found in the human nervous sys- 
tem. Although the results have not 
been compiled scientifically, it is 
debatable that the bananas con- 
tain enough saratonin to give a 
good psychedelic high. "The high 
is all psychological" says one 
knowledgable Somerset resident.

Profs Plan Summer 
Of Research, Study 

Many of the professors at Wash- 
ington College have already made 
plans for the summer months. 
Among these professors are Dr. 
Dwight Kirkpatrick, Dr. Richard 

Dr. Kirkpatrick has been accept- 

research program at the Florida 
State University, The program, 
sponsored by the National Science 
Foundation, provides psychology 
teachers with the opportunity to 
refine their research techniques and 
exchange information and ideas 
about the areas they will investi- 

Dr. Kirkpatrick will be working 
with Dr. Robert Schaeffer during 
the ten-week program. His project 
will involve some aspect of animal 
learning. , 

Seminars will enable fellow re- 
searchers to share their experiences 
in other fields which span com- 
puter-assisted learning, tempera- 
ture sensation, and the nature of 
visual sensitivity changes. 

Dr. Joseph McLain will spend 
most of his summer in Chester- 
town, completing the third and 
final year of work on an Army 
grant from the Chemical Research 
Laboratory of the Edgewood Ar- 

Dr. McLain, who is assisted in 
the laboratory by Michael Mc- 
Clure, has been studying the po- 
tassium chlorate-sulphur system 
which is used as a fuel mix in 
marker grenades. The mixture, 
though in some respects ideally 
suited as a propellant, has a ten- 
dancy to blow up unexpectedly. 
The purpose of the study has been 
to make the system less sensitive 
to accidental detonation. 

During the course of this inves- 
tigation, the Chemistry Depart- 
ment's Differential Thermal Analy-

will be used this summer is a spec-

fn addition to his work for the 
Army, Dr. McLain will teach a 
three-week course in solid state 
chemistry at Crane, Indiana. He

possible a wider number of con- 
tacts with high school guidance 
counselors and, of course, the 
students themselves. 

"We visit every Maryland high 
school at least once every other 
year, and many receive us annual- 
ly," Gray remarked. This policy 
will be continued, he stated, along 
with the personal campus inter- 
view policy for all prospective stu- 
dents who visit the campus. 

Students who tum down an ac- 
ceptance at Washington College are 
attending other schools of higher 
quality than ever before, Mr. Gray 

In order to obtain students with 
more diverse backgrounds, the per- 
centage of students from out-of- 
state has risen to 60 per cent; 
Maryland residents used to com- 
prise a similar percentage of the 
student body. This change has oc- 
curred within the past few years, 
Mr. Gray noted. 

"Another method for improving 
the quality of students applying to 
Washington College is to encour- 
age alumni and faculty to 'recruit' 
especially well-qualified students," 
Mr. Gray said. "Outstanding stu- 
dents with good records academ- 
ically or with above-average tal- 
ent in a field such as drama, mu- 
sic, or art should be encouraged 
to apply." 

Tne admissions department will 
also attempt to encourage more ap- 
plications from qualified Negroes, 
Gray said. There have been few 
Negroes applying for admission, he 

Next year, in order to keep fac- 
ulty, students, and alumni more 
fully informed about the opera- 
tions of the admissions department, 
there will be a newsletter published 
periodically. Information about ac- 
ceptances for the freshman class, 
and notes about developments af- 
fecting admissions standards will 
be included, Mr. Gray said.

Clairvoyance And ESP 
Are Topic Of Lecture 

"The philosophic implications of 
Extra-Sensory Perception," better 
known as ESP, was the topic of a 
lecture given by Professor Lewis 
Foster of the Philosophy Depart- 
bent of William and Mary last 
Friday evening in Hynson Lounge. 

"There are many forms of ESP," 
Professor Foster explained, "all of 
them leading or claiming to lead 
to knowledge gained by means oth- 
er than the five senses." Professor 
Foster went on to explain that 
there is considerable evidence to 
support those who claim to have 
ESP and that if it is proven to 
exist, it would have serious im- 
plications for modern philosophy. 

"Various forms of ESP are now 
being investigated by psycholo- 

"The idea of pre-cognition goes 
back to the Grccki and existed 
then as the Oracle at Delphi. 
Some of the best evidence, how- 
ever is contemporary and there has 
boen a real attempt to work with 
this in the lab." 

Professor Foster concluded hii 
lecture by stating that if, as some 
philosophers claim, the five senses 
developed because they were prag- 
matically useful, the ESP might 
be another tense, as yet not fully 
developed. "The predjudice 
against the idea of ESP has hamp- 
ered work in the field," Professor 
Foster concluded, "but it is no 
more ridiculous to investigate ESP 
than to investigate memory. In- 
quiry into the field should certain- 
ly be continued."

"Another type of ESP which 
occurs frequently is 'another-te- 
Iepathy J which is the ability to 
understand what someone else is 
thinking," Professor Foster said. 

Still a third type of telepathy is 
pre-cognition, or the ability to sec 
into the future. "If this phenom- 
enon is fact, the implications for 
philosophy are tremendous. If peo- 
ple can see into the future," Pro- 
fessor Foster explained, "then this 
would seem to imply that the fu-

End of Military Draft Advocated

America is overdue in bringing to

es foregone by draftees, we 

well be saving nothing at all. 

And this calculation fails to take 
into account the qualitative value 
of skilled career specialists serving 
in crucial military positions now 
filled by reluctant draftees. 

From the standpoint of individ- 
ual liberty, equity to all, the en- 
hancement of national security, and 
the total economic costs, the draft 
fares badly in comparison with an 
all-volunteer armed forces system. 
How do we get from the present 
draft to the volunteer army? 

First, we must unequivocally re- 
affirm our commitment to the goal 
of voluntary armed forces. The 
draft should be extended for one

partment's progress toward that 
goal. And military pay and fringe 
benefits should be raised substan- 
tially, starting now.

and regain for

Lacrosse fans noted a slow start by the Sho'men, attributa- 
ble to the rain earlier in the week which kept the team inside, 
or hampered workouts on the main field. The Kellyrnen soon 
shrugged off this lethargy and began what was to become a 
12-0 lead Iwfoix' the Generals scored. 

Obviously, W & L concentrated their offense with their at- 
tack. Every time the midfielders brought the ball downfield, 
the W&L attack called for the ball and tried to work some 
action from there instead of attempting some midfield play. 

The close defense of Tom Heald, goalie Ford Schuman 
and especially Pete Belts, played exceptionally well. Belts was 
consistent and rugged on defense. Added to the fantastic clears 
of Schuman, this defense was able to shut out W&L until the 
last quarter. 

Schuman was taken out with the score 10-0, and Dave 
Boulden took over, and continued with fine style in the goal. 
Boulden made several good saves, one especially memorable; 
a one-on-one at point blank range. Boulden refused to be faked- 
out and came out of the crease to block a well-placed shot by 
the General's best attackman, Jim Chew. 

Defense play was so good all day that the Sho' goalies were 
able to make a total of only eight saves. Willi the game out

a booming home run. From there

giving up only two hits in the suc-

the range. The team's lone tally 
of the game, which was called af- 
ter 6/2 innings, came in the third 
inning on back-to-back doubles by 
Bob VanDerClock and Al Streel- 
man. In all, the team managed 
five hits. 

The Towson contest began as 
many baseball games have begun 
this year. Washington, after the 
first inning, had jumped ahead of 
their opponents, 2-1. This was due 
to Dave Bruce's lead-off double, a 
walk lo Gee Hibberd, and a single 
by Bob VanDerClock. Bruce scor- 
ed on the single. When the out-

scored also. Pitcher Streelman

Washington's outstanding goalie 
Ford Schuman was sensational in 
the nets, consistently dodging op-

the Sho'men. 

Despite playing sloppy lacrosse, 
the Sho'men managed to score 
three more times in the second

Ortman, the other score by Mark 
Madden. The Sho'men left the

Joe Coale, chairmen of the Stu- 
dent Government's social commit- 
tee, explained that the cost of the 
weekend has required the SGA to 
set a ticket price of $12 for alum- 
ni and non-students attending the 
event. The cost of student tickets 
is $6, while seniors will receive a 
$3 'reduction. 

Tickets for the dance Saturday 
night will be sold until 9 p.m. Sat- 
urday night in the SGA office. No 
tickets will be sold at the door. 

Coale believes 
that "events such as these create 
a sense of unity in the student liody 
in that it is a general college af- 
fair, and not that of a particular 
group. These events give the stu- 
dent body something to look for-

Name Bands — Too Big? 

Each student pays $9.50 per semester to the Student Gov- 
ernment Association through the student activities fee. This 
money is distributed by the SGA to campus clubs and organiza- 
tions that show enthusiasm and leadership — and, of course, a 
need for financial support. 

The Elm wonders how many students realize that fully 70 
per cent of the $19.00 paid annually to the SGA is used to 
finance the social functions sponsored by the campus govern- 

It seems incredible that not even one-third of the students' 
money is used for purposes other than throwing parties. Al- 
though diere are obvious immediate benefits to be gained from 
having an active social calendar, and although the SGA may 
be honestly attempting to meet criticisms about the lack of 
campus social life, it is spending an exorbitant amount on bands 
and other entertainment 

The Social Chairman of the SGA obviously feels it is im- 
portant for Washington College to have big-name bands and 
personalities on campus; he has stated that "events such as these 
(spring weekend, Homecoming) create a sense of unity in the 
student body. . . . These events give the student body some- 
thing to look forward to." 

Spring weekend this year is costing over $4,000. Smokey 
Robinson and the Miracles are giving the college a "hot deal" 
and are charging only $3,000 for their performances. 

The Elm wonders whether the "sense of unity" created by 
spending more than $4,000 on one weekend is worth it. AH too 
often, the value of the performance by the big-name band is 
lost in the frenzy of the armory crowd. A concert-like setting 
would at least provide an opportunity to see the group perform. 

Fortunately, newly elected SGA President, Steve Myking, 
wants to cut down on the social expenses of the SGA. This 
decision is something less than arbitrary for him; it is a necessi- 
ty. There simply aren't enough funds to continue in the style 
to which we have become accustomed. Already the possibility 
of having a dance aboard the Port Welcome has been eliminated 
for next year, and SGA officers are concerned that there wi"< 
be insufficient funds to make the down-payments for the enter- 
tainment for Homecoming weekend. 

The Elm supports the move to reduce social expenditures 
by the SGA, and suggests that a slightly less well-known band 
may produce the loud, "motown" sounds desired, at less cost, 
allowing redistribution of funds to campus organizations. Saving 
even $1,000 on social activities will permit the granting of more 
funds to campus organizations, and in some cases, may double 
their resources allowing them to sponsor more energetic and 
constructive programs and

A situation which I have been 
privately grumbling about, for three

When President Gibson, Dean

bers of the Kent County Chapter 
of the Maryland Ornithological 
Society gathered in the surround- 
ing fields and marshes of this area 
for the annual spring counting. 

The bird watchers, including 
team captain of the lower Quaker

rivals of birds, rare birds that

4 Monte Cristo' Production 
Termed Dramatic Happening 


Countc of 



Charles Fechter and adapted by 
Mr. james Miller, professor of 
English at Washington College, 
will be presented by the Chester 
Players as part of the Chestertown 
Ter Party Festival. 

The play, a kind of "campie 
riiL-ludriinia", according to Mr. 



i during tin- singe a 
tion. Mr. Miller explained that I 
plans to use two screens, one stai 
right and one stage left. The a 

, both will be 
running simultaneously. 
Silent Films 
In addiiton to the filmed se- 
quences, there will be a series of 
35 mm slides which will be shown 
on the screen at stage right which 
will mock the action and dialogue 
on stage. Mr. Miller has some old 
silent film prints which he plans 
to use including some of Doug- 
las Fairbanks— senior, that is, and 
some of Clara Bow. 

"It's going to be kind of a mel- 
odramatic happening", explained 
Mr. Miller. "We decided to do 
something with melodrama and 
have had a lot of fun adapting it. 
The lighting, for example, will be 
very melodramatic and we plan to 
use a lot of color on stage." 
Freelanced Script 
"The idea for this kind of a 
production came about two years 
ago when we were doing Soroyan's 
"The Cave Dwellers", Mr. Miller 
stated. "We used a filmed se- 
quence and like the effect. We're 
doing a lot of experimenting and 
of course taking a lot of liberties 
with the script." 

Rehearsal for the stage se- 
quences is just getting started, ac- 
cording to Mr. Miller since the 
stage and auditorium have been 
in use for both the Players produc- 
tion of "MacBird" and the Spring 
chorus concert. The filmed se- 
quences are almost completed, 
however, most of the filming be- 
ing done by cameraman Chuck 
Engstrom at Vince Raimond's 
Teahouse. The "screenplay" was 
partially written by Senior English 
major Christy Kent and Junior 
Cheslcy Stone. 

The cast includes many college 
personnel as well as townspeople 
who have been active in the Ches- 
ter Players. Hal Taylor will play 

re! and Jack Schroeder a 
lers. Also included in the cast will 
be Chuck Engstrom as Noirtier, 
Kent Wallermire as Caderousse, Al 
Miller as Fernand, Mike Travieso 
as Villefort, and Dean Westerdahl 
as Faria. Other major roles will be 
played by Charles Cockey as 
Brigadier and J. C. Dulin as Al- 

The female cast members include 
Linda Waltermire as Mmle. Dang- 
lars, Dolly Schroeder as Mercedes 
and Mary Jean Hudson as Car- 
Honk y-Tonk Revived 

In keeping with the camp ap- 
proach to the play, the background 
music will be honky-tonk piano 
played by Henry Kratzer. The 
stage sets will include a rolling 
wagon along with several back- 
drops which can be lowered and 
raised during the play. 

The Chester Players have been 
active since 1965. To date, they 
have presented such productions as 
Soroyan's "the Cave Dwellers", 
Tennessee Williams' "Summer and 
Smoke", Bernard Shaw's "Arms 
and the Man" and Herb Gardi- 
ner's "Thousand Clowns" as well 
as two children's plays, "Peter 
Pan" and "Many Moons." 

The production is planned for 
May 18, 19 and 20 plus one per- 
formance on May 27 as part of the 
Tea Party Festival. All perform- 
ances will be held in William 
Smith Auditorium at 8:30. Asked 
for comment, Mr. Miller remark- 
ed "It's tough to follow 'MacBird', 

The Tea Party Festival, to be 
held May 26, 27, and 28 com- 
memorates the original Chester- 
town Tea Party, one of many vi- 
olent reactions against British 
rule which preceded the Revolu- 
tionary war. This particular protest 
was Maryland's first and occurred 
on May 23, 1774. 

In addition to the Chester 
Players production, the festival 
features daily re-enactment of the 
original event, a walking house 
tour and a tour of the country- 
side aboard the "Port Welcome."

Budget Strain 
For The SGA 

As we near the close of this

the books have yet to go in the

The Spring Honors Convocation, 
termed "a day of sanity" by speak- 
er Dr. Gerda Blumenthal, chair- 
man of the Department of Mod- 
ern Languages at Washington Col- 
lege, was held Tuesday, May 9, in 
Russell Gymnasium. 

In defining what she meant by 
"sanity", Dr. Blumenthal set the 
tone for the annual convocation, 
held to recognize the accomplish- 
ments of outstanding students. Dr. 
Blumenthal slated that in honor- 
ing these students, "what we arc 

Basing her talk on the theme 
of reality and delusion, Dr. Blum- 
enthal explained that by sanity, she 
meant "the inner sanity which re- 
sults when an individual has the 
courage to come to grips with re- 
ality." "Reality," she explained, 
"comes coated with endless layers 
of delusions which we provide for 
ourselves to make life smooth and 

"Sanity, then, is having the 
freedom and courage to see things 
as they really are. To do this one 
must take off the wrappings im- 
posed by habit and free onself of 
neat conceptualized thinking which 
deals in abstractions and disguises 
reality," she stated. 

Referring again to Anna Ka-

Wash ington Diamondmen 
Suffer Loss to Mounts 

By Bob VanDerClock 
The prospect of salvaging a pos- 
sible doubleheader victory against 
Loyola on Saturday was ended by 
rain, and so the Washington Col- 
lege baseball team finished the 
1967 season with undoubtedly one 
of the worst records in the school's 
history': one win, twelve defeats. 
The dismal year was compounded 
by the near-total loss of the team's 
hitting attack which in 1966 was 
the best hitting since Washington 

ington travelled to Mount Si 
Mary's, a team whom the Sho'inei 
had defeated in two straight year 
by successive scores of 6-3 and 3-2 
However, the team's hitting falt-r

A Quick 

By Dick Louck 

Last Saturday, Washington College lacrosse fans again were 
treated to an excellent performance by coach Kelly's charges, 
as they demolished a visiting Hofstra University squad on a 
rain-soaked Kibler field. 

Defense, attack and midfield units all clicked together and 
routed Hofstra by a 16-3 score. Carl Ortman continued on his 
path toward top scoring honors by matching Mike Kelly's five 
goals, both players getting high-goal honors for the game. 

Ron Regan out-pointed both although not scoring a goal. 
Regan fed others for seven goals to add seven assist points to 
his national high total of 71 points, 49 of those being assists. 

Although the field was wet and slippery, and a cold, light 
rain fell throughout the game, the caliber of play was sur- 
prisingly controlled. Washington's potent scoring machine put 
the game out of reach early in the second half. 

The Sho'men defense again showed strength, holding Hof- 
stra to only 14 shots. Washington goalies were able to make 
only five saves as the defense repeatedly took the ball from 
Hofstra before they could get a shot at goal. 

Earlier in the week the Sho'men swamped the University of 
Delaware by a 16-6 score, but played poor lacrosse for most of 
the game. Delaware was obviously outclassed as the Sho'men, 
even though making many careless mistakes, managed to score 
against the inept Blue Hens. 

One aspect of the lacrosse team that has not been men- 
tioned this year is the all-work, no glory job of team manager. 
For two seasons this nearly thankless job has been handled well 
by Gil Bliss. Gil has seldom made his presence known on the 
team, yet without him the players would surely notice an un- 
comfortable void. 

Gil, a sophomore, has played lacrosse, as a goalie, but last 
year was bested by Dave Boulden. This year with Ford Schu- 
man, Boulden and Jim Blandford all ahead of him as goalies, 
Gil again chose the ignominious job of manager. 

But he is more than manager. Gill fills the voids of grounds 
keeper, scorekeeper, news reporter, trainer, water boy, assistant 
equipment manager, and once in a while manages to play goal 
in a Junior Varsity game. 

Lacrosse players, and for that matter, most athletes, con- 
sider the team manager almost as a valet, and a sub-person. 
Sadly this continues, yet without him, any team feels his ab- 
sence. Thank you, Gil Bliss for doing a great job.

To Expand Acquatic Activity 

For all students who chose

ident Daniel Z. Gibson outlined 
a proposal for a boathouse on col- 
lege property. 

"It's just a dream in my mind" 
at the present time which needs 
defining, explained the President, 
but he hopes that a shelter for 
small craft will increase opportuni- 
ties for water activities. Despite the 
proximity of the campus to water, 
not one part has beach frontage, 
and there is no likelihood of the 
college purchasing any soon. 
College Property 

The only waterfront property is 
on the grounds of the Hynson- 
Ringgold House, the president's 
home. The Chester River boundary 
of the garden in front of the his- 
toric house is a shallow cove about 
one hundred feet in width. To one 

side i 

of the cove could be constructed 
a boat shelter for college — and 
student — owned craft. 

The proposal is "in nobody's 
development plans" at present, 
and, the president explained, three 
3teps must be completed before 

ity would likely be given to equip- 
ment of the newly established crew. 
He added that students would be 
welcome to bring private crafts to 
Chestertown and that perhaps the 
college could invest in a sailboat 
for general use.

Difficult tasks performed well consistently, too often lead one 
to forget how hard the job may be for the individual who labors 
over the task. 

Contributions to the extracurricular lift of Washington Col- 
lege are frequent among members of the faculty. Too often we 
forget, or do not know about valuable services rendered to the 
college by selfless faculty members. The Elm would like to call 
attention to those whose work is often behind the scenes and give 
credit and recognition to them. 

Near the top of the list must come Dr. Roland Gibson, 
whose art collection has done much to spread the name of 
Washington College. He has invested heavily of his own time 
and money to exhibit his paintings in colleges, museums, and 
galleries. Recently, Dr. Gibson personally took a number of his 
art works to Salisbury, where he did a live television broadcast. 

The weekly film series has been Professor Norman James' 
baby, in addition to his valuable support lent to art trips, college 
play productions, and to the Mount Vernon Literary Society. 

The Washington College Chorus was enlivened this year by 
John Walker's force and enterprise; Mrs. Helen Gibson ably 
accompanied the chorus this year, as she has done in the past. 
The field of music at the college is further strengthened by the 
varied interests and talents of other faculty members. The 
Kirkpat ricks. Dr. Smith, and Miss Covey are all willing to per- 
form on their respective instruments and share their musical 
enthusiasms with students. 

Dr. Brown adds to the student's opportunities to appreciate 
music, generously sharing his high-fidelity equipment, and by 
inviting students to accompany him on his frequent trips to New 
York's Lincoln Center. 

Fencing, sailing, and choral directing are only a few of die 
activities enjoyed by Dr. Robert Harder, and the many 
students he includes in these ventures. 

The campus religious organizations owe much to the unher- 
alded but consistant support of Drs. Blumenthal, Haske, Wake- 
lyn, and Trimmer. 

Many hours of planning and work have been spent by Drs. 
Tatum and Horsley on the Women's Honor Society, by Drs. 
Grumpclt, McLain, and Wakelyn on various student interests, 
and by Dr. and Mrs. Hoopes on their well-received and ably 
conducted discussions in die field of sex education. 

Recognition should also go to those persons who willingly 
serve as chaperones to student functions. 

Although not a member of the faculty, the Reverend Ralph 
Minkcr deserves the gratitude of the college community for his 
personal concern for many students, and for the welfare of the 
college in general. He has nourished in a refreshing way the 
religious and intellectual life of the college during the past two 
years, and will be missed next year when he leaves Chestertown.

Stop Growing? 

"Help Us Stop Growing" is the appeal of an advertisement 
in last week's Time magazine on behalf of Washington College. 
This slogan presents at least one curious contradiction : the 
future of the college, the development of the college are 
virtually synonymous with the objective of growth — certainly in 
numbers, hopefully in quality. 

Why then the appeal for funds to limit the size of the col- 
lege? It seems that the ad is, at best, a clever entreaty for finan- 
cial support and, at worst, a confused expression of the plans for 
the future of the college. 

The Elm hopes the ad represents the former effort: another 
means of raising much-needed capital for the operating expenses 
of the college. One may say that it is possible to grow in size — 
yet remain "small" by retaining a high faculty-student ratio 
while increasing the overall size of the student body. Yet this is 
not the stated goal — according to the ad. 

The Elm recognizes that Washington College is not in the 
privileged position shared by numerous educational institutions — 
that of having notoriety — and we admit that exposing the name 
of the college to a national audience does indeed spread the 
name of the college. 

But isn't it possible to do it some other way?

Mr. Eliason keeps two private 
planes based at the airport: a 
Beachcraft Debonnair and a Cess-

and other pilots keep (heir plants 
there also. Mr. Eliason shows much 
enthusiasm for flying, saying that 
"it grows on you. Every flight is 
an adventu

from Chestertown to Friendship

Mr. Eliason states with conviction, 
"YOU name an airport, and I'll 
get you there." 

Flying Lessons 
If there are any students who 
may be interested in flying, Mr, 
Eliason said that he would be glad 
to talk and give information to 
them. "The lessons aren't particu- 
larly difficult," he said, "but it 
really isn't quite as easy as driving 
a car." Students of flying learn the 
basic handling of the airplane dur- 
ing the first ten hours, then navi- 
gation and the FAA regulations.

and that the social budget is de-

If the SGA resorted to deficit

-Literary Review - 

Miscellany 185 

A handsome edition cf Miscel- 
lany ~ the I85ih — has just been 
published at Washington Collcc. 
Nena dear's magazine joins Tim- 
othy Maloney's Macbird, John 
Walker's "Coronation Mass" ' ?nd 
Gerda Blumenthal's "Sanity" as a 
very special part of Sprintr 1967 in 
ChesterEown, Maryland. The covr 
design by J. R. Sehroeder estab- 
lishes the creative mor.d of the 
magazine and the expectations it 
arouses in the reader arc, surpris- 
ingly often, gratified. 

The magazine is, of course, un- 
even. Purportedly "a campus mag- 
azine," it fails to achieve that goal 

ception of the first two articles, 
only imaginative literature. This 
failure cannot be attributed to 
Miscellany 185 or its staff, how- 
ever, but to the campus itself for 
not contributing to its own maga- 

sociological jargi.n and impression- 
istic personal observation which, 
while nicely written, fails to 
achieve coherence. Her ideas are 
tentative and delightfully youthful 
and should be considered success- 
ful as such. Richard Jackson's es- 
say, "Lincoln's Emancipation Pol- 
icy," is concerned with the idea, 
apparently surprising to Mr. Jack- 
son, that President Lincoln was 
not the mythological "Great Eman- 
cipator." but a shrewd politician

irone beyond the first year or so 
of high school. Rather than ques- 

tive, why not question what was 
his motive — "to save the Union?" 
It seems to me that the assumed 
value and neressity of saving the 
Union at whatever cost is an 
equally important moral and poli- 
tical issue which has not really 
been debated. 

The imaginative literature, in- 
terspersed with a nicely random 
selection of photographs and 
sketches, is what Miscellany 185 
is really about and the number of 
successful contributions is delight- 
fully impressive. Chesley Stone's 
peculiar play, "A Train Ride," 
reads almost as well as it played 
last month at the Moss Box. The 
situation and characters are ab- 
surdly believable and the dialogue

Director of Development 

A development office in the 

minds of most people is synony- 
mous with fund raising. And in- 
deed, largely that's its function. 
But, in a much larger sense the 
phrase "college development" in- 
cludes the total growth of an ins- 
titution as well as the direction in 

For Washington College the re- 
cent growth and development 
started in 1960 when the Heritage 
Campaign was still in its formative 
stages. Since 1962 when the formal 
fund raising efforts were initiated, 
some $8.5 million has been donat- 
ed to this venerable institution. 
Physical Facilities 

That money has been allocated 
for use in building three new dor- 

tcr-dinin" hall, n.-w athl.-rir fields. 
a 51.3 million Arts Center, a main- 
tenance building and 

the accomplishments in these 
areas; but it is precisely in these 
areas that the fund raising efforts 
have had their reason for being. I 
will leave it for others to describe 
the ways in which Washington has 
grown academically, but let me say 
simply that by most quantitative 
and qualitative measures there can 
be no question about Washington 
being a better school today than 
ever before. 

Looking into the future, what 
can be expected? The projects of 
the Heritage Campaign have been 
pretty well defined. Requirements 

r iw 

studied and established. 

By 1970, when the present Her- 
itage Campaign is scheduled to 
end, campus additions should in- 
clude a new $1.5 million library, 
a women's gymnasium, a swimming 
pool, another men's dormitory and 
an infirmary. There will as well, 
be conversion and renovation of 
existing facilities for faculty and 

A crucially important matter. 
and a necessary adjunct to these 
accomplishments is the vital ex- 
pansion of endowment funds for 
si-hiilarships. faculty chairs and op- 
erating income. 

Total Program Considered 

Taken individually one might 
make a strong case for placing 
priority on any one of the propos- 
ed projects. Unfortunately t h c 
parts cannot be separated from the 
whole. We are looking at the 
Washington College of 20 years 

removal of Cain Gymnasium, for 
be weighed i 

the students away. So, the whole 
thing is a spider's web and it is 
nearly impossible to discuss accur- 
ately a single part without missing 
some other part of the complex

To discuss "development" in tin 
more comprehensive sense om 

formal fund-raising program in 
1962 was simply the reflection of 
the patterns in American Higher 
Education. These patterns are 

changing very quickly today. 

According to Frank E. Bowles, 
a top educational specialist with 
the Ford Foundation, we will be 
founding a college per week in the 
United States by 1980. By the 
time the present Heritage Cam- 
paign is concluded, electronic 
equipment will he changing teach- 
ing techniques and new demands 
will be being placed on the liberal 
arts. It is also a foregone conclus- 
ion that new ways of financing ed- 

the fun

academically, would drive the fac- 
ulty away. To pay less than aver- 
age faculty salaries would attract 
less than average faculty and drive 

ff I could close with an editorial 
opinion it would be this, Washing- 
ton College is not a cloister re- 
moved from the influence of econ- 
omic, political, social and philo- 
sophical trends in this world; how- 
ever, it should not spend too much 
time worrying about the influence 
the trends will have on it, rather 
Washington College should now be 
planning to have its own influence 
on the trends.

Student enrollment in 1962 was 510 students; this 
year began with 625 students, an average increase 
of twenty-three students per year. Again, il this 
projection is followed, we will have an enrollment of 
970 students by the year 19H2. 

Assume we have 'l,000 students by 1982, and that 
student fees increase at a rate slightly less than the 
standard of living, it will cost students $4,000 per

arc two important words to 
change, an important ques-

we should be flexible and adapt to those changes, 
and even anticipate them.

our society for the small college— with an enrollment 
that is to be expanded to 750— and that there is a 
very definite need for colleges of this si/e to cater to 
students who do not want what the universities 
have to offer. 

I'm not suggesting that we take only mom's apple- 
pic all American type students; but I think we should 
have what Mr. Gray of the admissions department 
here at Washington College commented on recently 
as being a well-rounded student body, people from 
all walks of life, from different ethnic, racial, and 
national origins— who can contribute so much to the 

Best School 

I urge those of you who arc alumni to keep in 
touch with what is going on on the campus; to re- 
turn periodically to see the changes. In simple, 
practical terms, the better the college is, the better 
your diploma is. Now there are much broader rea- 
sons for being in college but that, in this practical 
societv, is a very useful one. 

Clifford Hankey: 1 find myself asking the question: 
if I had to make the choice again, if I was in the 
positon of choosing a college, would I choose Wash- 
ington College or a small liberal arts college, and 
why. I am sure that I will be put in this position in 
the future when someone asks my advice, asking 
what I think of Washington College, what I think 
of a liberal arts approach to education. What will 

people (persons between the ages of 5-24). 
By 1982 that will be close to 100 million. 10 mil- 
lion of that group will be involved with undergrad- 
uate education; twice as many as there are today. 
Public education will begin at age 4 and continue 
through age 24. That works out to one community 
college per 50,000 residents. At the present time we 
are founding approximately twenty colleges a year; 
by 1980 we will be founding one per week. 
Facilities Doubled 

We will have to add, by 1975, facilities equal to 
twice all the campus buildings that have been erected 
in the United Slates since Harvard opened its doors 
in 1636. 

The economy is now spending about 6 per cent of 
the gross national product on education; by 1982, it 
will be spending 10 per cent on education, by the 
year 2,000, the figure will have risen to 25 per cent.

In order, then, to remain relevant, we need not 
abandon liberal arts; we need to adapt liberal arts. 
Friendly Computers 
Whatever path we follow, I think the students of 
1982 can expect to develop friendly relations with 
computers instead of teachers, have more freedom as 
far as course selection is concerned, along with more 
independent study. They will find less time for them- 
selves; more video tapes, fewer text books. There 
will be greater responsibility, mote mobility and less 

Washington College is a small college, but should 
not be considered unique with its financial problems. 
I wish us luck. 

Alexander "Sandy" Jones: Dr. Donalds of the 
Johns Hopkins University history department was 
quoted recently as saying that history is very inter- 
esting in itself but that it has no real value unless 
we apply it to the present and to the future. This is 
what I propose to address myself to now. 

There have been a number of changes in this col- 
lege since I was a student. It is often said by my 
contemporaries that we could no longer matriculate 
here or be graduated from this institution, which 
is undoubtedly true, and which I think is a recogni- 
tion by these alumni that the college has improved. 
Board Broadened 
One of the first changes that was made when 
President Daniel Gibson came to Washington College 
was the expansion of the Board of Visitors and Gov- 
ernors, from primarily Eastern Shoremen who suf- 
fered from myopia and could not see beyond th*i 
Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. The number 
of men on the board was increased to thirty-six (the 
size of the graduating class that year). This broad- 
ened the "base" of the board considerably. Other 
changes were instituted regarding the eligibility and 
selection of members of the board. 

When I was a student here, full professors were 
paid less than instructors are paid now. The build- 
ings all had been dedicated by Dr. William Smith, 
and the students came from wherever the college 
could get them. 

Better Faculty 
The faculty has quite obviously improved in cali- 
bre and background. The students are drawn essen- 
tially from the upper one-fifth of their graduating 
classes, the remainder from the top half. 

In the next fifteen years, I suggest that we emu- 
late the start, the precedent that has been estab- 
lished during the past fifteen years. In terms of ac- 
complishment during that period, this is no small 

: thing, though it is not all-inclusive, 
but it is very important: the relationship that exists 
between students and faculty and the relationship 
that exists among students. 

I will take the second One first. In speaking to 
some of the panel members earlier, I mentioned that 
I was afraid to graduate, that I didn't know what I 
would do when I got my diploma, had I graduated 
from the University of Maryland where I began my 
college education. 


In terms of student relations with other students, it 
goes without saying that there is the element of im- 
personality in the university system. At Washington 
College we often boast of how well we get to know 
one another, of the close friendships which are made 
and never broken. 

These are not the pleasant experiences, many 
times that we make them out to be. They are hard 
experiences. There are problems in dealing at this 
very personal level which one can more easily avoid 
at a large university. I do not know what I am go- 
ing to do after my anticipated graduation, but I 
know it is going to involve people. Dealing with 
people, understanding their viewpoints, getting along 

Carl Westerdahl 

with people, (not necessarily agreeing with them) 
but being able to work with them, to communicate 
with them, is going to be a problem we all face. 
Problem: Communication 
Now I imagine this is probably trite and over- 
simplified', but in our society, it is one of the biggest 
problems: communication. And this is something 
that while it might appear to be very easy down 
here, isn't necessarily the case. It's something that 
you have the opportunity to acquire. The challenge 
is presented: there are problems in such close rela- 
tionships, there are very definite rewards. You not 
only get to know other people I think, but you get 
to know yourself. Other people know you better. 


Value Of Liberal Arts Examined 

Maybe that's the thing that makes it difficult some- 
Instructor Relationship 

What about the relationship with instructors? 
Why do I think that is important? 

I think the teacher at a liberal arts college this size 

has the responsibility. One thing that is within this 

realm (as course load, size of classes, and salaries 

are not) is his relationship with students. 

It's Not Enough 

It is not enough to say that there are fewer stu- 
dents in the classroom at a college this size; it is not 
enough to say that you can get to know the teacher 
better, on a personal basis. 

The important thing is how this opportunity 
is approached by both the student and the teacher. 
The relationship. I would submit, at a school this 
size, is the most important thing. I strongly believe 
that. It is the measure of success or failure of the 
school. At Washington, with only 600 students, the 
opportunity, not only for knowing students, but for 
motivating students. 

Faculty Are People 

If there is one thing that I can say positively about 
this school and about what I've gotten from it, it's 
this: I have gotten to know faculty members as peo- 
ple. It is to view a teacher, as a person with a priv- 
ileged position in the classroom. But something hap- 
pens when you meet this person without his aca- 
demic garb, when you finally come to realize that 
education, being an educated man, does not neces- 
sarily just mean accumlating facts, being able to 
give a good, entertaining lecture, giving you the 
grades that you think you deserve. There is some- 

If there is really one strong point that this 
school has, and could even improve on, it's this one 
thing: I don't know what my educational status 
is; we can figure out from grades and from compar- 
ing ourselves with one another how much Washing- 
ton College has affected us academically, how much 
we have reacted to it. I don't know if I'm going to 
become an educated man, but I know one thing now, 
and I think if we're going to compare and contrast 
university philosophy of education to the liberal 
arts, I think this one point is valid, and I think it is 
worth pointing out and remembering: While I might 
not be an educated man, I know what an edu- 
cated man is. And I think that is very important. 
Dr. John Waketyn: I thought I would go into the 
past of Washington College and see if there are any 
clues in the past that might have some bearing on 
the present, and more importantly, the future, of 
Washington College. I have decided to look, from 
1782 on and to project to 1982, to look from an his- 
toric perspective into the years to come. 
Money Raising On Horseback 
As most of you know, William Smith, the first 
Provost of the College of Philadelphia which became 
the University of Pennsylvania was also the founder 
of Washington College in 1782. His first task, I 
suppose like every president, was to raise money. 
Now for William Smith, it was a bit easier. He got 
on his horse, he traveled the Eastern Shore for five 
months, and raised the twenty or thirty pounds or 
so that it took to start the college. Times have chang- 

The initial problem was money. With Smith's 
hard work, he was able to raise it. In 1789, George 
Washington, who lent his name to the college, and 
who as a matter of fact, was one of the first bene- 
factors of the college, expressed to William Smith 
his views of the college and the college's future. 
At this time Washington was president-elect, per- 
haps the most famous man in the country. He said 
"In civilized societies, the welfare of the state and 
the happiness of the people are advanced or retard- 
ed in proportion as the morals and the education 
of the youth are attended to." 

Washington Praises Smith 
George Washington went on to praise William 
Smith for the teaching, for the curriculum, and for 
the imagination that Smith showed as founder of 
the college. "Imagination" is a word I think we 
should hold on to. It is a very important word in 
looking at the vision of the future of Washington 

Now as so often happens to a college in a tew 
short years, seven years to be exact, 1789, William 
Smith left Washington College. This was the begin- 
ning of a long line of financial troubles for a small 
school. From' 1827-1844, this was the period of the 
dark ages at Washington College. Further financial 
troubles difficulties in finding students, the Eastern 
Shore part of the south was a troubled, beleagured 
area, but then in 1844 a man by the name of Ring- 
gold became president of Washington College. 
Ringgold Vision 
President Ringgold had a vision. If you are going 
to have students, you must build buildings; you 
must house them! you must find a place to teach 
them. He helped to build what is now Middle 
Hall, one of the oldest buildings on the campus. This 
was the end of the dark ages, the beginning of the 
reawakening of the college. 

But again, as happened in the south after 1865, 

Washington College underwent a reconstruction. The 
college again fell on hard times. 
Active Alumni 

But the alumni also took an active part. The 
gates to the entrance of William Smith Hall were 
first started through contributions made by the class 
of 1929. 

From then to the present, the college has grown 
to the point where it has over 600 students, and 
over 60 faculty members. The emphasis again, is 
on quality. Also, the emphasis on a healthy build- 

President Gibson (left) congratulates Cliff Hankey 
(right) on speech as Dean Landon Burns, Jr., watches 
ing program: the Fine Arts Center which is almost 
finished, plans for a new addition to the gym, a new 
library, a projection that by 1970 that the student 
body will consist of some 750-800 students. But I 
submit that this quick- sketch of the college is just 
the beginning, and in seeing these individuals, these 
leaders of the college and their actions you can get 
some clues as to what Washington College must 
have, must do in the future. As Professor Gibson 
has said, and many other members of the faculty, 
the college can't rest on its laurels. The college has 
come a long way, up and down like the stock mar- 
ket you might say; but there are still problems, prob- 
lems of finances, problems of students : ~

The students are 
fact, I would dare say that the 

getting better faster than the faculty 
.uggestions: that Washington College 

lift its vision; emulate the audacity, the actions of 
these men of past. We should follow what Mc- 
George Bundy, president of the Ford Foundation, 
said just a few weeks ago to some representatives 
of small colleges: "Look around you in 1980. No 
matter what the small college is, if you don't have 
1,000 to 1,200 students, you're not going to be 

That's The Game 
These are the facts of the game. This is the way 
it works. How large can a small college get? Dart- 
mouth College has 3,000 students, but it still has a 
small, student- teacher ratio, an ability for the faculty 
and students to get together and mingle. The num- 
ber is not so important: perhaps because I am an 
historian my vison is small, but I project a necessi- 
ty of at least 1,200 students by 1982 at Washington 
College. 758-800 by 1970 is a fine goal and is some- 
thing we must achieve, but by 1982, times will have 
changed so much that 1,200 would be the minimum. 

I also think that we should think seriously about 
opening a full time summer school — to further aid 
the students and perhaps add needed finances to 
the college. 

I think in terms of service. That is what a col- 
lege is for, in part, to serve. In looking around the 
eastern seaboard, I note the problems in education, 
chronic problems in education in areas which will 
send students on to us. 

So Washington College, having a plant to teach 
teachers, should perhaps extend its vision to the point 
of a masters of arts in the teaching program. 
Hope Is Important 

With a little bit of hope, and hope is a very im- 
portant thing, the Bay Bridge will come in soon. 
This could change the Eastern Shore overnight. 
We could no longer be an appendage; we could be 
a suburb. 

The school, the college, grew because of three fac- 
tors: the vision of the founder, the imagination of 
various presidents, and audacity, this last above all 

So, let me say that perhaps the past, and we 
antiquarians of sorts can give vision to your present 
and perhaps even to the future. 

Card Westerdahl: I have developed two theories 
about the future of Washington College. 

I think there is one area that is of extreme con- 
cern to me, one that is extremely challenging and 
is most important to the college's future.

It is now possible to confidently refute the charge that 
Washington College students are apathetic. At least some have 
energy — in fact, a great deal of energy and enthusiasm — suf- 
ficient to organize a sport new to Washington College: crew. 

The scene of the practices is St. Andrew's School in Mid- 
dletown, Delaware, an hour's round-trip ride from the college. 
The coach is Mr. Davis Washburn of the mathematics depart- 
ment, who is also the head crew coach for St. Andrew's. 

Jamie Johnson, a Washington College sophomore and a grad- 
uate of South Kent School where he learned to row, felt that 
there was sufficient enthusiasm and interest in the sport to try 
to bring the world's oldest intercollegiate sport to Washington 

After several futile attempts to find a school that was willing 
to part with an old (eight-oared) shell, Johnson made arrange- 
ments with Coach Washburn to use the St. Andrew's facilities 
three times per week. Shells, oars, launches and other equip- 
ment were loaned by the school for use by the college novices. 
Workouts progressed and so did word of the activity in the 
"new" sport., More students attended practices, and soon, 
enough men were available to fill two shells. 

With only three practices each week, limited in length by 
the number of daylight hours (extended on occasion by Coach 
Washburn's flashlight), and beginning in April, the oarsmen 
progressed rapidly, quickly learning the fundamentals of rowing. 

After concentrating on improving form, eliminating

Miscellany 185 

By Bennett J, Lamond_ 

A handscme edition of Mind- 
lany — the 185th — has just br-rn 
published at Washington College. 
Nina Olear's magazine joins Tim- 
othy Maloney's Maebird, John 
Walker's "Coronation Mass" and 
Gerda Blumenthal's "Sanity" as a 
very special part of Spring 1967 in 
Chestertown, Maryland. The cover 
design by J. R. Schroeder estab- 
lishes the creative mood of the 
magazine and the expectations it 
arouses in the reader are, surpris- 
ingly often, gratified. 

The magazine is, of course, un-

failure cannot be attributed to 
Miscellany 185 or its staff, how- 
ever, but to the campus itself for 
not contributing to its own maga-

while nicely 


tentative and delightfully youthful 
and should be considered success- 
ful as such. Richard Jackson's es- 
say, "Lincoln's Emancipation Pol-

apparently surprising to Mr. Jack- 
son, that President Lincoln was 
not the mythological "Great Eman- 
cipator," but a shrewd politician 
who freed the slaves not because 
nf any humanitarian visinn of jus-

The imaginative literature, in- 
terspersed with a nicely random 
selection of photographs and 
sketches, is what Miscellany 185 
is really about and the number of 
successful contributions is delight- 
fully impressive. Cheslcy Stone's 
peculiar play, "A Train Ride," 
reads almost as well as it played 
last month at the Moss Box. The 
situation and characters arc ab-

Total Program Considered 

Taken individually one might 
make a strong case for placing 
priority on any one of the propos- 
ed projects. Unfortunately t h e 
parts cannot be separated from the 
whole. We are looking at the 
Washington College of 20 years 
from now; in that context, the 
removal of Cain Gymnasium, for 
example, must be weighed in the 
light of our total building pro- 
gram, our overall efforts to im- 
prove the college's facilities. 

A new functional library with 
central location and adequate 
space is necessary to support the 

faculty and students. At the same 
time higher faculty wages raises 
operating costs which then increas- 
es tuition which restricts the num- 
ber of qualified students who can 
afford private education without 

the students away. So, the whole 
thing is a spider's web and it is 
nearly impossible to discuss accur- 
ately a single part without missing 
some other part of the complex 

Reflects Education Pattern 
I think that probably the de- 
velopment program in which Wash- 
ington is now engaged is an ex- 
tension of a development campaign 
that had been gong on for about 
180 years and will continue for 
another 180. Having decided long 

tion of merit, the adoption of a 
formal fund-raising program in 
1962 was simply the reflection of 
the patterns in American Higher 
Education. These patterns are 
changing very quickly today.

Dr. Milton Eisenhower has suggested that our 
challenge, is to humanize technology. I would agree 
wiih that proposition. 

Change and Relevance 

Change and relevance arc two important words to 
keep in mind. As times change, an important ques- 
tion to ask is whether Washington College is rele- 
vant to the society in which it exists. I think that 
we should be flexible and adapt to those changes, 
and even anticipate them. 

Some facts about Washington College and the 
future growth of the population are interesting. 
Today the school age population n 
million people (persons between tl

ages of 5-24). 
llion. 10 mil- 



Public education will begin 
through age 24. That works out to one community 
college per 50,000 residents. At the present time we 
are founding approximately twenty colleges a year; 
by 1^80 we will be founding one per week. 
Facilities Doubled 
We will have to add, by 1975, facilities equal to 
twice all the campus buildings that have been erected 
in the United States since Harvard opened its doors 


The economy is now spending about 6 per cent o( 
he gross national product on education; by 1982, it 
.-ill be spending 10 per cent on education, by the 
ear 2,000, the figure will have risen to 25 per cent. 

1 believe that we can 
say with reasonable certainty that no college that i* 
established today is going to be allowed to fail. The 
question is: Who will pay for this education? 

Students cannot, are not, and will not. Business 
and philanthropic organizations, along with private 
individuals, who last year contributed a total of 
$13.6 billion (48 per cent of which went to support 
religious institutions) cannot support education alone. 
Joint Venture 

Federal and state aid cannot do it alone cither. 
There will be a cooperative venture, much as exists 
today, with the governmental agencies paying an in- 
creasingly larger share of the costs, the student, an 
increasingly smaller portion. 

At Washington College in 1962, the total cost of 

fiscal year 

,, a 73 per cent in- 

iod. If we follow that pro- 

fourteen years, cost of operation 

Id be in excess of $10 million. 


Student enrollment in 1962 w; 

year began with 625 students, ; 

of twenty-three students per year. Again, if this 

projection is followed, we will have an enrollment of 

970 students by the year 1982. 

Assume we have 1,000 students by 1982, and that 
student fees increase at a rate slightly less than the 
standard of living, it will cost students $4,000 per 
year for an education in 1982. 

Income — Deficit 
This would produce an annual income of $4 mil- 
lion, against projected annual operating expenses of 
over $10 million. Where is the $6 million for opera- 
tions alone going to come from ? 

There are two alternatives we can take. One is 
that we can move along simply reacting to Che 
changes in our society as they occur; the other is that 
we can anticipate those changes, that we can change 


our program before society force 

If we accept the first alternath 

be listed among the also-] 

, I think i 

The students, particularly the graduating studei 
should realize that they, as alumni, elect by ballot 
twelve of the members of the board. Twelve others 
are appointed by the governor, and the remainder 
are, in effect, selected by the first twenty-four. 

May I suggest that you give careful considera- 
tion to the ballot and to the biographical sketch that 
you receive about the candidates. 
Place In Society 

We must also strive to increase the calibre of the 
faculty. We must try to attract men of wisdom, of 
learning, not necessarily of experience; men of vi- 
sion, broad-minded men who can expose us to new 
ideas. We must also continue to attract and cater 
to outstanding students. I feel there is a place in 
our society for the small college— with an enrollment 
that is to be expanded to 750— -and tha 
very definite need for colleges of this size 



what the 

iggesting that we take only mom's apple- 
pie all American type students; but I think we should 
have what Mr. Gray of the admissions department 
here at Washington College commented on recently 
as being a well-rounded student body, people from 
all walks of life, from different ethnic, racial, and 
national origins — who can contribute so much to the 

Best School 

I urge those of you who are alumni to keep in 
touch with what is going on on the campus; to re- 
turn periodically to see the changes. In simple, 
practical terms, the better the college is, the better 
your diploma is. Now there are much broader rea- 
sons for being in college but that, in this practical 
society, is a very useful one. 

Clifford Hankey: I find myself asking the question: 
if I had to make the choice again, if I was in the 
positon of choosing a college, would I choose Wash- 
ington College or a small libera! arts college, and 
why. I am sure that I will be put in this position in 
the future when someone asks my advice, asking 
what I think of Washington College, what I think 
of a liberal arts approach to education. What will 


ond alternative, we would find ourselves among the 
leaders, among those who are not afraid to take a 
chance to get in the lead. 

In order, then, to remain relevant, we need not 
abandon liberal arts; we need to adapt liberal arts. 
Friendly Computers 
Whatever path we follow, I think the students of 
1982 can expect to develop friendly relations with 
computers instead of teachers, have more freedom as 
far as course selection is concerned, along with more 
independent study. They will find less time for them- 
selves; more video tapes, fewer text books. There 
will be greater responsibility, more mobility and less 

Washington College is a small college, but should 
not be considered unique with its financial problems. 
I wish us luck. 

Alexander "Sandy" Jones: Dr. Donalds of the 
Johns Hopkins University history department was 
quoted recently as saying that history is very inter- 
esting in itself but that it has no real value unless 
we apply it to the present and to the future. This is 
what I propose to address myself to now. 

There have been a number of changes in this col- 
lege since I was a student. It is often said by my 
contemporaries that we could no longer matriculate 
here or be graduated from this institution, which 
is undoubtedly true, and which I think is a recogni- 
tion by these alumni that the college has improved. 
Board Broadened 
One of the first changes that was made when 
President Daniel Gibson came to Washington College 
was the expansion of the Board of Visitors and Gov- 
ernors, from primarily Eastern Shoremen who suf- 
fered from myopia and could not see beyond ths 
Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. The number 
of men on the board was increased to thirty-six (the 
size of the graduating class that year). This broad- 
ened the "base" of the hoard considerably. Other 
changes were instituted regarding the eligibility and 
selection of members of the board. 

When I was a student here, full professors were 
paid less than instructors are paid now. The build- 
ings all had been dedicated by Dr. William Smith, 
and the students came from wherever the college 
could get them. 

Better Faculty 
The faculty has quite obviously improved in cali- 
bre and background. The students are drawn essen- 
tially from the upper one-fifth of their graduating 
classes, the remainder from the top half. 

In the next fifteen years, I suggest that we emu- 
late the start, the precedent that has been estab- 
lished during the past fifteen years. In terms of ac- 
complishment during that period, this is no small 

I hit upon one thing, though it is not all-inclusive, 
but it is very important: the relationship that exists 
between students and faculty and the relationship 
that exists among students. 

I will take the second one first. In speaking to 
some of the panel members earlier, I mentioned that 
I was afraid to graduate, that I didn't know what I 
would do when I got my diploma, had I graduated 
from the University of Maryland where I began my 
college education. 


In terms of student relations with other students, it 
goes without saying that there is the element of im- 
personality in the university system. At Washington 
College we often boast of how well we get to know 
one another, of the close friendships which are made 
and never broken. 

These are not the pleasant experiences, many 
times that we make them out to be. They are hard 
experiences. There are problems in dealing at this 
very personal level which one can more easily avoid 
at a large university. I do not. know what I am go- 
ing to do after my anticipated graduation, but I 
know it is going to involve people. Dealing with 
people, understanding their viewpoints, getting along 

Carl Westerdahl 

with people, (not necessarily agreeing with them) 
but being able to work with them, to communicate 
with them, is going to be a problem we all face. 
Problem: Communication 
Now I imagine this is probably trite and over- 
simplified, but in our society, it is one of the biggest 
problems: communication. And this is something 
that while it might appear to be very easy down 
here, isn't necessarily the case. It's something that 
you have the opportunity to acquire. The challenge 
is presented: there are problems in such close rela- 
tionships, there are very definite rewards. You not 
only get to know other people I think, but you get 
to know yourself. Other people know you better.

Washington College ended the 1967 lacrosse 
Wednesday with a hard-fought victory t 
Lacrosse Union All-Stars. The game w;

win 15-11. 

The British team was perhaps the 
bunch of guys a person could Wi 
selected from among the many 1; 
Only two were members of a University team. 

Quite unused to American rules at first the British learned 
very quickly and were able to beat Swarthmore 17-15 before 
losing to the Sho'men. Then later in the week the Stars whip- 
ped Towson 17-5, showing further improvement. 

The British play with twelve men on a team, they don't 
wear helmets, and the rules are such that the game is much 
more genteel than the American version. The British soon ac- 
customed themselves to the body checking and rough play not 
found in England and used their surprising speed to come un- 
comfortably close to beating the Sho'men.

land Another fed beer to the cherished thoroughbred pups 
kenneled behind the big house. All in all, the Britishers 
such a great bunch of rollicking good guys that I'm sure the 
Kelly squad was sorry to see them leave. 

The Sho'men played three or four really good games this 
season. That may sound silly with an 11-1 record, but many of 
those eleven games were more or less easy touches for the Sho'- 
men. A good game is not especially a winning game, but a 
"ame in which everything seems to go right. 

The games against Brown, Hopkins, Hofstra, and parts of 
the Washington & Lee game were the best this year. The 
rest of the games were marred by either a lack of hustle, co- 
ordination, and just general lack-luster effort. 

In the beginning of the year. Coach Kelly had doubts about 
this season being very successful. The loss of Jaeger, Svec 
and Rudolph Kelly thought would be very sorely felt. How- 
ever, Mark Madden turned in a remarkable year at attack, and 
was much more valuable at that position than at last year's 
midfield spot. 

The addition of Tom Heald to the defense also took some of 
the shock of the loss of Svec away. Heald is not as good with 
the stick as Svec, but his clearing was very valuable. Pete Betts 
played with much more confidence and poise this year, again 
helping to brighten the picture for Kelly. 

But besides individual performances, the team effort and 
the overall balance of the team was remarkable. Although the 
top scorers of the team are among the top ten scorers in the 
country, the scoring was still spread out somewhat, as every-

At present the Phi Sig A team 
has clinched first place in the

fraternity teams. With a perfect 
record of 5-0, they will meet the 
winner of the Lambda A — Theta

Faculty, Simmons Tied 

In the National League, the 
Simmons team is tied with the Fa- 
culty for first place. Both teams 
have a 4-1 record. A flip of a 
coin will decide who will play the 
third place finisher, the Sanova 
Beech Boys. 

It is interesting to note that in 
the finals there will be a match be- 
tween hitting and pitching. The 
National League appears to have 
the better pitchers, while the
